The Bourbon Boom and Its Ties to New Orleans
NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) - Bourbon is as American as blues and jazz.
It’s been here since the beginning of this nation and seems to be more popular than ever. So much in fact, bourbon producers are starting to struggle to keep this American Whiskey on store shelves.
One of the largest bourbon distillers, Buffalo Trace, recently put out a statement addressing their inventory shortage saying, “…there is no way to predict when supply will catch up with demand.”
Bourbon experts; Wesley Janssen, of Dickie Brennan’s Bourbon House; Kevin Richards, of Sazerac Company, Inc.; and Adam Acquistapace, of Acquistapace’s Covington Supermarket shed light on the bourbon boom, along with a unique story that ties bourbon to New Orleans.
