Bourbon Myths Busted

Common Misconceptions

Bourbon has its fair share of myths that need debunking. One common misconception is that all bourbon must come from Kentucky. While Kentucky is famous for its bourbon, it can actually be made anywhere in the United States. Another myth is that older bourbon is always better. Age doesn't always equate to quality; sometimes, younger bourbons can be just as delightful.

Expert Opinions

Experts agree that the type of grain used in bourbon production significantly impacts its flavor profile. For instance, a higher percentage of corn will result in a sweeter bourbon, while more rye can add a spicy kick. They also emphasize that the aging process, while important, is just one of many factors that contribute to a bourbon's unique character.

Fun Facts You Didn't Know

  • Bourbon must be made from at least 51% corn.
  • It must be aged in new, charred oak barrels.
  • The name "bourbon" is believed to come from Bourbon County, Kentucky.
  • Bourbon cannot contain any additives or coloring.
Understanding these myths and facts can make your bourbon experience even more enjoyable. So next time you pour a glass, you'll know a bit more about what makes this spirit so special.
