Lux Row Distillers Bourbon with corn

Corn and Bourbon, an American Love Story

When you’re talking about bourbon, you can make a list of what matters — barrels, fermentation, mash bill, water. But there’s one more important thing that has to be on the list: corn. Without corn, bourbon cannot exist. (more…)
