Celebrate St. Paddy with a hoot of a Bourbon.

Deep in the Kentucky Bourbon Trails region, one Charles M. Dedman, a local druggist, founded the Kentucky Owl Distillery in 1879. He was merrily producing Whiskey on a lot he got from his father-in-law as a wedding gift until everyone decided alcohol prohibition was a grand idea, and the Feds confiscated $40 million worth of booze. To make things worse, Al Capone (most likely) burnt down Dedman's business to the ground. The brand and the story were left forgotten in the ashes until Chuck's great-great-grandson Dixon phoenixed Kentucky Owl from oblivion.

Kentucky Owl teamed up with Irish Whiskey bonder Louise McGuane (founder of J.J. Corry) to honor the age-old connection Kentucky Whiskey-making has to Ireland. She collaborated with Master Blender John Rhea to create a special St. Patrick's Edition. It features cherry-picked barrels of Kentucky Bourbon, bonded the ol' Irish way. The unique dram offers a sweet and spicy nose and rich caramel, citrus, and chocolate flavors. We're in love!

At any given time, there are more barrels of Bourbon in Kentucky than there are people. The population of the Bluegrass State is about 4.4 million. Today there are more than 5 million barrels of Bourbon sitting in the rick-houses of that Old Kentucky Home. That’s nearly 300 bottles of Bourbon per person, or about 60 gallons each.
Bourbon Is a ''new barrel Spirit'': One of the legal requirements for Bourbon is that it only be aged in brand new oak charred barrels.
Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
Bourbon only needs to be placed in a new oak container for a few seconds to be called Bourbon. Fresh from the still and unaged Bourbon is called a White Dog. Recently, many of the larger distillers have started packaging this harsh, clear grain spirit for sale.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Sure, Kentucky gets all the press when it comes to Bourbon. And with good reason—nearly 95% of it is produced there. But Bourbon can be made anywhere as long as it's within the United States. Just ask states with budding distilleries like Illinois and New York.
