Bourbon Heritage Month 2022

Welcome to National Bourbon Heritage Month (BHM) 2022! Before we get too deep into this post, let's take a look at what BHM actually means and how it came to be. According to that all knowing oracle, Wikipedia, BHM is...
" observance in the United States that calls for celebration of bourbon as America's "Native Spirit". On August 2, 2007, the US Senate declared September as "National Bourbon Heritage Month." The bill, sponsored by Republican Senator Jim Bunning of Kentucky, passed by unanimous consent. The resolution calls for consumers who enjoy bourbon to do so responsibly and in moderation. The bill reinforces the 1964 Act of Congress that declared bourbon "America's Native Spirit" by celebrating the family heritage, tradition and deep-rooted legacy that the bourbon industry contributes to the United States."

Everyone has their own way to celebrate this special month and, as long as you are enjoying some bourbon, I don't think there is a wrong way to celebrate. If you are looking for a fun way to enjoy the month though, I encourage you to participate in Bourbon & Banter's #30DaysOfBourbon challenge. I'll let you head over to their website for all the specifics but basically it boils down to drinking 30 different bourbons in 30 days or a different bourbon each and every day. This will be my fourth year participating and I will say it's something I look forward to every year.  You can follow my challenge here, on my Facebook page, and on Instagram. So go over to Bourbon & Banter, grab their overlays and calendar and get ready for a great month.

Now, without further adieu, let's get on with the blurbs:
