Bourbon Distilleries

Bourbon is a type of whiskey that has its roots deeply rooted in the local culture of Kentucky, USA and can be traced back to the 18th century. Many local bourbon distilleries in the USA have taken advantage of the growing craft distillery trend and are offering unique varieties of bourbon to showcase their local style and tastes. Whether enjoying straight-up bourbon or as part of a cocktail with your friends, bourbon can be enjoyed by everyone. Bourbon can offer spicy and oaky tastes with distinctive flavors which differentiate it from other whiskeys. Bourbon also varies in strength and some can be quite strong with an average of 40 ABV.
