"From jobs to investment to tourism, bourbon is a vital part of the Bluegrass economy that benefits all of Kentucky's citizens," Gov. Beshear said. "It's also a key export and a proud symbol of our heritage that's known and acknowledged around the world.
"It's a privilege to proclaim September 'Bourbon Heritage Month' in recognition of our historic distilling industry. My administration is committed to working with our distillers to help this essential part of our economy grow and thrive."
Beshear also congratulated the Kentucky Bourbon Trail, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. "Visitors from all 50 states and around the globe are flocking to Kentucky in record numbers to enjoy the bourbon experience," Gov. Beshear said.
The Kentucky Bourbon Trail links eight of the state's historic distilleries: Brown Forman's Woodford Reserve, Buffalo Trace, Four Roses, Heaven Hill, Jim Beam, Maker's Mark, Tom Moore and Wild Turkey.
