“Too much of anything is bad but too much good whiskey is barely enough.”– Mark Twain, Author

It’s fitting that one of the greatest storytellers in American History had this to say about whiskey many years ago.

And as an author who wrote about life on the Mississippi River we have to believe that Mr. Twain was writing these words specifically about American’s only native spirit, Bourbon, a spirit that he surely enjoyed as it passed down that mighty river regularly heading for New Orleans and the rest of the world.

Bourbon is all about two things: (1) the people (those who make it and those who drink it), and (2) good stories. There is nothing better than sitting around with friends, both old and new, sharing a delicious glass of Bourbon and telling great stories.

At The Bourbon Life our mission is simple – to share our passion for all things Bourbon with you.

May your glasses always be full and may you keep on living The Bourbon Life.

I’m extremely excited to announce that we’ve partnered with Keepers Heart Whiskey as a sponsor of the Podcast for 2024. 

We’re BIG fans of Brian Nation and everything he’s doing at O’Shaughnessy Distilling with the Keeper’s Heart brand (not to mention that they have some of the funniest videos on the internet regarding Brian leaving Ireland to join them). 

If you’re not familiar with Brian, or Keeper’s Heart, you definitely need to be. They ate creating some amazing blends and whiskies to say the least so be sure to give them a try. 

Thank you, Keeper’s Heart, for partnering with us and for supporting us on this amazing journey. 

Have I mentioned how AWESOME 2024 is going to be?
