If you know bourbon, then you know about proof. It’s the handy numerical code that tells you how strong the spirit is, printed on the label of every bottle of liquor.
Regular glasses are fine for some things, but not for bourbon. To truly honor the spirit’s flavor, scent, and color, you need a vessel that enhances every aspect of the whiskey you’re pouring.
Bourbon can be made anywhere — and yet it’s indelibly linked to the state of Kentucky. According to the Kentucky Distillers Association, 95 percent of all bourbon is made in the Bluegrass State.
