1) American whiskey made in Kentucky, not necessarily in Bourbon county (one of my favorites is made in Woodford county). Some say the limestone in the water in Kentucky gives the bourbon a distinctive taste. US Congress declared bourbon "America's Native Spirit" and it's official distilled spirit in 1964.
2) The best drink if you feel like "gettin red" and you're a poor soul that can't get any moonshine.
Baby, this bourbon makes you look HOT!!
In order to do a good rebel yell, you first have to lubricate your throat with a healthy dose of bourbon.
