Since the 1700’s, Kentuckians have been converting corn and other grains to whiskey. So how did it become bourbon? One of Kentucky’s original counties was Bourbon county. Farmers from this county would ship their whiskey in oak barrels, stamped Bourbon County, down the Ohio or Mississippi river. The long trip aged the whiskey and gave it a flavor which became in high demand. It soon became known as Bourbon whiskey.
