Kentucky Bourbon Timeline
Part of the allure of Kentucky Bourbon is the rich history of artisanship that has persisted through generations. In response to incredible consumer interest, the Kentucky Distiller’s Association commissioned four Kentucky Bourbon Hall of Fame historians to research and develop an official historical timeline. The interactive Kentucky Bourbon Timeline documents how Bourbon has been impacted by topics such as advertising, legislation, technology and transportation. The timeline also catalogues historical events such as prohibition and American wars that have shaped the spirits industry as we know it.
