FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Bourbon fans can learn more about the history of their favorite whiskey.
The Kentucky Distillers' Association has released a bourbon historical timeline of pioneers, landmark events and noteworthy occurrences.
The timeline can be found under the "History" tab at the link below.
KDA President Eric Gregory says bourbon fans are thirsty for more than premium whiskey. He says they want to know more about bourbon's past.
The interactive timeline documents how bourbon has been affected by such things as advertising, legislation, technology and transportation.
It catalogues historical events such as Prohibition and American wars that have shaped the spirits industry for more than 200 years.
Timeline committee chairman Al Young says the group steered away from brand-specific items and focuses on events that transformed the industry. Young is brand ambassador at Four Roses Distillery.
