September is a month of many observances. It is when we commemorate Labor Day and Patriot Day, celebrate the Jewish New Year, and usher in the autumn season. September is also National Bourbon Heritage Month and the perfect time to raise a glass to America’s native spirit.

Bourbon has strong ties to Kentucky, but it can be made anywhere in the United States. In fact, in order for whiskey to be considered bourbon it has to be made in this country and comply with the following specifications: must be aged in a new charred-oak barrel; the mash must be at least 51 percent corn; it cannot enter the barrel at higher than 125 proof; it must be natural and free of coloring and flavor additives, with the only acceptable addition being water to lessen the proof. 

What better way to mark National Bourbon Heritage Month than with a lively take on an old-fashioned? With soft floral notes and a bright finish, this Southern Rose is the ideal September sip.
