In Hong Kong, we rarely scratch below the surface of bourbon, but many names we see, normally tucked to the side of more prominent Scottish varieties like Macallan or Johnnie Walker, chronicles almost all the important characters and events of American bourbon and whiskey history; Elijah Craig, Rebel Yell, Evan Williams, Jim Bean, Knob's Creek, Jefferson's bourbon, Jack Daniel's, Wigly, Small Batch 1792. What's special here is how much these stories are unvarnished, but treasured, and retold proudly. Over the past few years we've come to treasure even more, our own history, language, culture in Hong Kong. Next time we enjoy a glass of American whiskey, no matter if it's a bourbon, rye whiskey, sour mash, or straight whiskey, its historical depth of struggle and resilience, should taste rather familiar to our hearts, and garnish a greater appreciation.
