These bottles are perfect for your National Bourbon Heritage Month promotions.

It’s hard to imagine that there was a time before the mid-2000s that we didn’t officially celebrate our native spirit, bourbon. It wasn’t until August 2007 that the United States Senate voted to observe National Bourbon Heritage Month throughout September.

Setting aside partisan differences, each and every one of our senators voted for this month of observance, making it a unanimous decision.

If that isn’t proof that bourbon can bring us together, I don’t know what is.
