A super American sour mash Whiskey from Kentucky.

Ever have one of those shower thoughts and think, wait, who invented the cowboy hat? Well, that is a shower conundrum we can help you solve (You'll need to take care of the meaning-of-life-ones yourself, sorry): it was John Batterson Stetson who also founded the John B. Stetson Company. The hats soon became known simply as Stetsons. The company was set up during the Gold Rush in the 1860s and there were ups and downs in their story. At one point, the company was largest headwear producer in the world, but today the hats are made by Hatco in Garland, Texas.

John B. Stetson Straight Bourbon Whiskey pays a tribute to the American icon of cowboy hats. This fantastic sour mash Whiskey is distilled in Kentucky and bottled by John B. Stetson Spirits, LLC. It’s quintessentially American: crafted from native American corn and local wheat, rye, and barley, it’s then matured in charred American oak barrels. (All that’s missing is Dolly Parton singing the national anthem, dressed as an eagle, eating fries, amirite?) Bottled at 84 proof, the flavors of vanilla, char, spice, and fruit on the palate are for you to enjoy any way you like. On the rocks, in a cocktail, neat, whatever you want.

Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
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.
"Remember that iconic poster from World War II showing Rosie the Riveter as a patriotic American woman doing her part for the war effort? Well, hundreds of businesses did their part too, and the Bourbon distillers stepped right up with ‘em.

Distilleries all over Kentucky and Tennessee were re-tooled to distill fuel alcohol and ferment penicillin cultures to treat wounded soldiers."
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.
Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
