National Army Day

Every June 14 celebrates the establishment of the US Army. Created in 1775, it was originally composed of amateur soldiers. Many great moments in the history of this organization. Keep a good thought for those currently serving and some for those who have served and made the ultimate sacrifice.

National Bourbon Day

Bourbon is the official spirit of America I'm sure some of you bourbon aficionados already know this, but for those who don't:

"Like Scotch, Cognac and some other spirits that 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. To legally be a considered Bourbon, it must be 51 percent corn, stored in new (not aged) charred-oak barrels and distilled no more than 160 proof and barreled at 125 proof.

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."

Let's raise a glass to the Army today.
