Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Bourbon Day

Bourbon is a type of American whiskey, a barrel-aged distilled liquor made primarily from corn.

The name derives from the French Bourbon dynasty, although the precise inspiration for the whiskey's name is uncertain; contenders include Bourbon County in Kentucky and Bourbon Street in New Orleans, both of which are named after the dynasty.

It was recognized in 1964 by the United States Congress as a "distinctive product of the United States". Bourbon sold in the United States must be produced in the U.S. from at least 51% corn and stored in a new container of charred oak.

Bourbon is a popular and versatile spirit served in a variety of ways, including neat, diluted with water, over ice ("on the rocks"), with cola or other beverages in simple mixed drinks, and in cocktails, including the Manhattan, Bourbon Smash, the Old Fashioned, the whiskey sour, and the mint julep.

Bourbon is also used in cooking and was historically used for medicinal purposes
