Did you know? It’s in the water and quite literally why over 90% of the world’s bourbon is produced in Kentucky.
The limestone found in the creeks and streams naturally filters iron from the water while enriching it with calcium and magnesium. This is what helps the yeast thrive and makes all the difference to create great bourbon.
Additionally, this is also one of the reasons why Race Thoroughbreds are raised in Kentucky; the minerals in the water and the bluegrass gives them strong bones, making them superior horses.
And now you know why Kentucky makes the best bourbon and horses in the world—it’s in the water!
