I’ve got some fun alcohol facts for you. You never know what questions Roy will ask, so be prepared!
- Unlike beer and wine, all spirits are originally completely clear and colorless; their golden browns and other hues are the result of the aging process.
- There is no worm in tequila. It’s in mezcal, a spirit beverage distilled from a different plant. And it’s not actually a worm, but a butterfly caterpillar (Hipopta Agavis) called a gusano.
- Bourbon takes its name from Bourbon County in Kentucky, where it was first produced in 1789 by a Baptist minister.
- Bourbon county no longer produces bourbon.
- Rye was the first distinctly American whiskey. It is distilled from a combination of corn, barley malt, and at least 51% rye.
- Gin is spirit alcohol flavored from juniper berries. First made by the Dutch, it was called junever, the Dutch word for “juniper.” The French called it genievre, which the English changed to “geneva” and then modified to gin.
- Sloe gin is not gin at all but a liqueur made with sloe berries (blackthorn bush berries).
Have a great week and we’ll see ya there!
