Long ago I was informed that bourbon came only from Kentucky and that was even part of some sort of law [which I know isn't true now] but that to be bourbon you had to not only have the formula but also be made using the limestone rich waters of Kentucky.
So the question is does bourbon come only from Kentucky and the rest is just whisky? Or is it only the formula that matters and not where its bottled?
Don't intend to hijack the thread at all, just wondered what others thought.
Thanks! To legally be a bourbon, it has to be made in the US, though most bourbon is made in Kentucky. There are some other specs as well a producer most follow to fit the "bourbon" moniker.
It's not made in Kentucky, but I'm telling you, it tastes every bit as good as any Kentucky bourbon I've had (or better).
