Bourbon Resources

As you may know, bourbon has been made in Kentucky for more than two centuries. There are stringent rules about what differentiates bourbon from the more generic “whiskey.” Our state’s natural resources, including limestone water, robust corn crops, and oak trees used to make the barrels, have contributed significantly to Kentucky’s historical ability to make the flavorful spirit. In fact, nearly 95% of all bourbon is still made in Kentucky.

Because of this long heritage, there are many passionate locals who love to share their knowledge about our signature beverage.

On this page, we’ve gathered a number of resources for you. Our Featured Distillery series gives you a closer look at the craft distilleries of Northern Kentucky.

Our “Recommended Podcast” section shares our favorite shows for in-depth discussions about bourbon.

We are also proud to share our favorite source for bourbon-themed gifts, as well as additional resources for the Northern Kentucky region, a “Gateway to Bourbon Country.”
