    We live close to the only wood fired distillery in the US, Wood Hat Distillery in Montgomery city, MO. Absolutely awesome Blue Corn Bourbon. Rubenesque Bourbon is my favorite!

    False. Bourbon, as recognized by the United States government, isn't required to follow a geographic appellation. The Standards of Identity for bourbon sold in the US is as follows: a minimum of 51% corn in the grain bill (mash); distilled in the United States (ANYWHERE) to no more than 160 proof; aged in charred, unused, oak barrels; racked at no more than 125 proof; and bottled over 80 proof. Bourbon aged a minimum of 2 years with no other added colors, flavors or spirits qualifies to be labeled as Straight Bourbon. While it's true that a large majority of bourbon is produced in Kentucky, there is no requirement and many distilleries all over the Unite States produce true bourbons.

    Bourbon is only made in Kentucky. Some places call it bourbon, but if bourbon is made anywhere but Kentucky, technically it is then whiskey. Even if say Jim Beam were to open another location across state lines and then use the exact same recipe, the batches from the new location would technically be whiskey. It is just easier and less confusing to let them call it which ever one they want to.

    rum IS a Caribbean/West Indian spirit just because because it is now produced in various places throughout the world does not change it's place of birth

    The most powerful ‘drug’ in absinthe is and has always been THUJONE
    pre-ban euro absinthe has/had higher amounts of thujone, while the ABV is normally higher in absinthe it is not the only reason it was so popular with bohemian artists
