In case you didn’t realize, there is a full-fledged whiskey revolution going on in America right now. Some may call it a fad, but for others it’s a way of life. To get more specific, bourbon whiskey is particularly popular right now, or as some call it, “America’s Native Spirit”. Bourbon whiskey is in our blood. No seriously. In order for a whiskey to be called a bourbon it has to be made in America. Another thing that makes straight bourbon pretty amazing is it must be barrel aged for at least 2 years, and that barrel must be a brand-new, charred white oak barrel. Nothing except water can be added during the distilling process. Neat-o, eh?
Fueling this revolution are the new distilleries popping up all over the country, and you better believe Colorado is at the forefront, blazing that path. That’s right Kentucky, we’re coming for ya!
