Where does Bourbon Come From?
Hello drinkers! Want to know where does bourbon come from? Bourbon is America’s well known contribution to the growing world of whiskey. If legends are true, Elijah Craig and Jacob Spears of Kentucky invented and named ‘bourbon’ before sailing it down the river of Ohio in late 18th century. Today tons of American whiskey are being shipped around the globe by industry giants like Jack Daniels and Jim Beam. In the US alone, bourbon whiskey is a billion-dollar industry, making up about two-thirds of exported distilled spirit. More on the history of the American bourbon below.
