National Bourbon Day!

national bourbon day

About 5 weeks ago our nation celebrated May 4th – Bourbon Independence Day, well me specifically, and today we thankfully celebrate another bourbon holiday:  June 14th, National Bourbon Day. Remember, bourbon is America’s native spirit and 100% an American conception. Understandably, we really don’t need an excuse to enjoy bourbon and it’s patriotic history, but when a day is set aside for such a thing, then we should embrace it wholeheartedly and participate. Agreed? I know I am.

How are you celebrating?

Tonight I have filled my favorite glencairn with Bulleit (10 years old) and a solitary ice cube. As you know Bulleit is the anchor bourbon on my bar, but the 10 year old (limited release) was a special treat from a dear friend. I can’t think of a more appropriate day then National Bourbon Day to imbibe such a remarkable bourbon.

Today’s national day of recognition comes with not only a sense of celebration but an obligation to honor America’s first responders, specifically the United States Capitol Police. I lift my glass to the two brave Capitol Police officers who, completely out-gunned, advanced and bravely neutralized the threat and saved numerous lives. That was certainly some “high-speed, low drag” kind of shit. God bless you and I pray for your speedy recovery.
