Toast to the Chief this Presidents Day weekend—or just get chiefly toasted—with America’s native spirit: bourbon. But did you know that bourbon needn’t necessary be made in Kentucky to be rightfully called bourbon?
Crafted in America’s heartland, W. H. Harrison Indiana straight bourbon and the bold, high-rye, barrel-proof Governor’s Reserve are named for William Henry Harrison (1773-1841), governor of the Indiana Territory who later became our ninth president. President Harrison was also a military general, farmer and a distiller. While his presidency was short (32 days), Indiana’s bourbon creds are long: endless fields of corn, oak trees for barrels and limestone aquifers.
Indiana’s first distillery since Prohibition, W.H. Harrison joins craft whiskey-makers across the U.S. from New York (Tuthilltown.com) to Wisconsin (DeathsDoorSpirits.com) to Utah (Highwest.com). W.H. Harrison will debut in Las Vegas at Table 10 and Delmonico Steakhouse.
Enjoy it in good company.
