“he is a bourbon fool”

This is the first of many posts that will be an education about everything Bourbon.  Being a Made in America guy  that enjoys American history and also enjoys a simple glass of bourbon led me on a journey to discover why bourbon is considered the American native Spirit.  The approach will be to discuss interesting facts about the history, distilling, enjoying, and visiting everything about this popular drink.  Bourbon is more than sitting back and enjoying a drink.  Visiting a distillery in Kentucky is a grand introduction into southern hospitality. Not only will you meet many people during a bourbon excursion to Kentucky but you will more importantly meet many “friendly people”.  Southern hospitality is a vital part of the bourbon experience.  During your travels you will take in majestic scenery, a healthy slice of Americana, and  learn about a story that ebbs and flows throughout history.  intends to introduce you to the truth about bourbon whether you are a seasoned consumer or a whiskey beginner.

The goal here is to keep it simple and light.
