The Judicial History of Whiskey

The judicial history of whiskey. And Maker's Mark wins in the 6th Circuit.

In other news, the sun continues to rise in the east.

A few choice excerpts:
  • Justice Hugo Black once wrote, “I was brought up to believe that Scotch whisky would need a tax preference to survive in competition with Kentucky bourbon.” Dep’t of Revenue v. James B. Beam Distilling Co., 377 U.S. 341, 348-49 (1964) (Black, J., dissenting).
  • All bourbon is whiskey, but not all whiskey is bourbon.
  • “As many counties of Kentucky claim the first production of Bourbon as Greek cities quarrel over the birthplace of Homer.”  H.F. WILLKIE, BEVERAGE SPIRITS IN AMERICA—A BRIEF HISTORY 19 (3d ed. 1949).
