Why is it that every time you walk into a liquor store the whiskey section is so neatly organized into perfect sub-categories like rye, bourbon, scotch, and Japanese? Walk to the rum aisle in the same perfectly manicured store and you will find a coconut liqueur next to a funky Jamaican rum, next to a solera-aged rum, next to a snazberry-infused rum…. You get the point. How can we begin to organize this category in an easily understood logical way? We will do just that by breaking it down into three major categories: rum, rhum, and ron.

Bourbon is more American than apple pie, existed before baseball, and has built more roads, schools, and government infrastructure than any non-petroleum domestic product. That’s saying a lot for a style of whiskey made predominantly from corn. Since its birth, bourbon has transcended its intoxicant liquor status and become an American symbol used in political circles, popular culture, and harsh economic times. This seminar gives the full history of bourbon, including the early distillers, how it became popular, why it lost to vodka in the 1960’s, and how it got its groove back in the mid-2000’s. Bourbon: A History will prove bourbon’s not just a drink; it’s a slice of America.
