Bourbon 101: What's in a name?

Updated: Nov 18

The origin of the name Bourbon is shrouded in mystery. Bourbon was a noble French House founded in 1272 which spread all over Europe and found its namesake in neighbourhoods of the southern states of America through European immigration.



However, whether this much-loved spirit is named after Bourbon Street in New Orleans or Bourbon State in Kentucky, nobody really knows. Nobody really cares either as we love Bourbon either way!
