The Bourbon Boom

Doesn’t have anything to do with the newspaper industry as such, but I guess you’ve read the news about the booming bourbon industry in the Bluegrass.

That reminds me of the sign in the bar of the Marriott East. If you were at the 2019 KPA 150th Anniversary Convention, perhaps you saw the sign. It read:

“In Kentucky, there are more barrels of bourbon than there are people.”

The 2017 population of Kentucky was 4.454 million. So that’s a bunch of bourbon stored across the Commonwealth.
