Kentucky Spirits Offer the World A Taste of the Bluegrass
11 Jun 2021
America’s only native spirit was born from a unique combination of Kentucky’s naturally pristine limestone water and fertile cornfields. Aged in charred oak barrels, bourbon offers the world a taste of the Bluegrass State.
Over the last decade, bourbon’s popularity has increased dramatically, leading to several significant expansions among the state’s many bourbon barons — including, Jim Beam, Evan Williams and Maker’s Mark to name a few. In 2019, Kentucky officially earned its title as the nation’s leading whiskey exporter.
