September is National Bourbon Heritage Month. So this month we can celebrates its ninth anniversary reinforcing the 1964 Act of Congress that declared bourbon “America’s Native Spirit.” Passed unanimously by the US Senate, the bill inspires the celebration of the indigenous Kentucky spirit, moderately, all month-long.

So to celebrate here are some fantastic bourbons that you can pick up and enjoy responsibly this month.
