September is National Bourbon Heritage Month, a time to celebrate and recognize the rich history behind today’s booming bourbon industry. But since bourbon heritage is irrevocably intertwined with the culture and history of America itself, it only makes sense to find ways to add it to our daily lives and treat ourselves from time to time.
Here are a few ways to add your favorite spirit to some of your favorite treats.
Lux Row Distillers launched Daviess County Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Finished in Lightly Toasted American Oak Barrels. This new, limited-edition bourbon is the first in a series of annually offered toasted-barrel finishes for the Daviess County Bourbon brand family.
Making bourbon is a complex process, and a lot goes into crafting your favorite dram. One of the most distinctive factors that separate one bourbon from another is the mashbill, which is essentially the specific combination of ingredients that goes into each barrel before it’s stored.
However, multiple mashbills can serve as the base for a bourbon family with a variety of finished bourbons. If you’re wondering how this is possible, you’re not alone.
