Celebrate National Bourbon Day with the Harrison Public Library. We will be learning about and tasting American spirits of choice at Wellington's Grill in Harrison, located on 110 Halstead Avenue.

Like Scotch, Cognac and some other spirits which must meet certain standards as well as be produced in a particular geographical region, Bourbon is a whiskey which is only so named if distilled in the United States. This particular whiskey derives its name from the Kentucky county which was established in 1785 and was a large producer of corn. The corn, once distilled, would be put in barrels and stamped “Old Bourbon” and shipped down the Ohio River. In 1964, a Congressional Resolution designated Bourbon as America’s native spirit. Since then, there is nowhere else in the world that can make a whiskey and call it Bourbon.

Registration is required for this free program open to adults 21 and older.
