Celebrate National Bourbon Day

Bourbon has been around for decades and while it’s a type of whiskey, one must remember not all whiskey is bourbon. Bourbon is distilled from a mixture of grains that is at least 51% corn and always aged in new charred oak barrels. It’s an American whiskey, and while most of it comes from Kentucky, it doesn’t have to. Tomorrow, June 14, is National Bourbon Day so celebrate the mid-week festivity by trying out one of these recipes created by the masterminds at Fordham Lee Distillery.
