The 14th of June is National Bourbon Day.  A whole day to celebrate the magic that is the golden liquid from the USA.   For a whiskey to classify as bourbon it must be made in the U.SA. In addition, its mash bill (mix of grains from which bourbon is distilled) must comprise at least 51% and no more than 79% Indian corn.  Besides corn, the other grains used, include malted barley and either rye or wheat. Bourbon must be aged at least two years in a new, charred oak barrel made from American White Oak.

With all this commercial pressure, it feels like we loose the important point of just having fun.   And Valentine’s Day should be fun!
