I try to find unique facts about bourbon and whiskey whenever I can and I wonder are these the top 10 whiskey quotes of all time?
It is interesting to see the mention of bourbon and whiskey throughout aspects of everyday life. Bourbon placement in the movies becomes more prevalent and if you look for it you can find several mentions. In the movie John Wick there is a scene where he is obviously drinking from a bottle of Blantons. Director Sam Raimi drinks Makers Mark and is known to include it in many of the movies he makes. Kevin Costner gets drunk on Jim Beam in the baseball movie Bull Durham. Movie stars, political figures, and writers are just some of the characters who become part of whiskey lore.
These are my top 10 whiskey quotes of all time!
