Bourbon Heritage Month Has Begun

Bourbon Heritage Month Has Begun


September is Bourbon Heritage Month which means that I will be partaking in the beverage a little more than usual this month. 
The national observance was first declared in 2007, and has been celebrated in Kentucky and around the country ever since.

I figured that since it is the start of the month that I would offer a brief history of bourbon to kick off these celebrations.

Houston, Hyatt, and A Woodford Manhattan

20140219-192907.jpg
So I sat in a Houston hotel lobby this week waiting for colleagues to arrive to enjoy a nice steak dinner. While I waited I decided to enjoy a Manhattan made with Woodford Reserve Bourbon. Like many bourbon drinkers, Woodford has been one of my go to bourbons for a long time now. This is due to a few easy reasons; it is very smooth, full of flavor, and possibly most importantly, it is available in most of the nicer bars around the country. Availability should never be underestimated!

On that note, what I interesting is that while nicer bourbons are fairly common in the United States, they can be very hard to come by in other parts of the world. Bourbon simply doesn’t get the respect it deserves around the globe, especially when compared to Scotch and Vodka. Far too often when I ask for a good bourbon in far away lands I get Jack Daniels. No disrespect to good old Jack, but it simply does not reflect the fantastic bourbons that can and should be offered instead.

I think we should remedy this, what do you think?
