Bourbon liqueur

Type

Liqueurs, spirit-flavored

Description

Generic for liqueur with Bourbon whiskey flavor/base. Brand examples: Jeremiah Weed, Wild Turkey Bourbon Liqueur. Due to savvy marketing from the 1940s into the 1970s, Southern Comfort has gained a position as the premier American whiskey-based liqueur. Unfortunately, however it was made before Prohibition, it does not have a whiskey base today; it is made with grain neutral spirits and flavorings (and may always have been.)

Flavor

bourbon whiskey
