    Bourbon from Canada? Just sounds wrong. Very, very wrong.

    First two bottles, bottled in Detroit, Mi then on to Canada…I’m from up north…didn’t know Detroit ever bottled Bourbon, but then I was much younger.

    It was not till 1964 that a resolution of the U.S. Congress declared bourbon to be a “distinctive product of the United States.”
