In celebration of #BourbonRebirth, I've named the 15 most-important brands (not distilleries) for bringing bourbon back. My criteria for creating this list was who made the biggest impact through sales, quality, marketing, innovation and trendsetting since 1980, a year this beloved spirit was left for dead.
I may have a thing for using Bourbon in the kitchen. Not so much for drinking it. The hubs does though, so there's usually some on hand in the bar. Using it in the kitchen for some flavor though? I'm all about that! Which is why you can find Chocolate Bourbon Truffles and Bacon Bourbon Meatballs on the site also.
In celebration of #BourbonRebirth, I'm ranking the most-influential bourbon brands since 1980, when bourbon mattered little on the national scene.
