There is a running debate among friends on this. I say no, it must be made in KY in addition to being 51% (or more) corn mash. Someone else says it does not have to be made in KY; it's just about the % of corn mash.
Maybe it is my KY roots that makes me stick to my guns, but I still say no, there is no such thing as Tennessee bourbon. So, those of you down there in bluegrass country can school me good on this important topic. Thanks for your help and bottoms up!
