If you like bourbon you will surely enjoy the article about the best bourbon bars in NYC. Insider Monkey recently published an article about this topic giving you some very useful tips. As for me, I don’t like bourbon at all, but I enjoy reading about it. Bourbon can be one of the most iconic American drinks and there are are standards that should be met for a whiskey to qualify as a bourbon. For a whiskey to qualify as a bourbon, it should be made of 51% corn and the rest of malted barley and rye or wheat. For many, it should also be made in America, as Kentucky is where it all started. This is aged in new oak barrels which are most often white oak barrels. Elijah Craig who is a Baptist preacher is credited with the invention of bourbon. Some, however, question this history because there were apparently already distilleries dealing in corn whiskey even before Craig. But since Craig was the one credited, we can say though that he helped in the further development of bourbon.
