American Native Spirits

Say "America's Native Spirit" to anyone who studied history on the college level, and they will think of Indian religiosity. Clearly, we've been spending too much time in the library.

In this case, the US Senate used the phrase while declaring September to be National Bourbon Heritage Month. (No, it has nothing to do with the French family. Get your mind out of the study carrels. )

According to TheLiquidMuse, The US Senate invested the time from their packed schedule in order to:

"reinforce bourbon as “America’s Native Spirit.” In doing so, it celebrates the family heritage, tradition and deep-rooted legacy that the bourbon industry contributes to the United States."

Clever Senate. . . turning bourbon swilling into a family value. I'll drink to that!

Out of patriotism, I offer these other sites to learn about the history of bourbon:
