September 1, marks the beginning of National Bourbon Heritage Month, that’s why we have created this short introduction, to bring all of you who aren’t familiar with the celebration month up to speed, to make sure you don’t miss out on this great advent.
By an act of the American congress on August 2, 2007, September was declared National Bourbon Heritage Month. The resolution calls for consumers to celebrating the family heritage, tradition and deep-rooted legacy that the bourbon industry contributes to the United States.
The resolution calls for consumers who enjoy bourbon to do so responsibly and in moderation.
“The bourbon industry is a source of pride for Kentucky and its Heritage and has served as a major part of the Commonwealth’s economy for over 200 years.” “I am pleased that Kentucky bourbon will be recognized across this nation in September,” U.S. Senator Jim Bunning declared, when the bill passed by unanimous consent.
As America’s only indigenous spirit, bourbon and its industry was first recognized by congress in 1964 when it declared bourbon “America’s Native Spirit”.
One of the major bourbon events in September is of course the legendary Kentucky Bourbon Festival, which Bardstown have been hosted every September since 1991.
Don’t despair if you aren’t located near Bardstown, Kentucky, because all across US the bourbon heritage month are being celebrated. Even some places in Europe have finally started to celebrate Bourbon Heritage Month. So keep an eye out for upcoming events around your city or at your favorite whiskey bars.
It goes without saying that The Son of Winston Churchill also are going to celebrates America’s Native Spirit with the rest of you Bourbon loving nuts, and all through September we will focus entirely on bourbon.
Cheers and don’t forget to celebrate accordantly. Happy Bourbon Heritage Month
