Default Corn or Cane?

I love molasses in my baked beans but if it's not 51% corn made in American it won't be bourbon! This should be an anathema to those boys in Bardstown but Jim Beam & Co. is part of a conglomerate whose bottomline may some day change their version of the "Classic American Spirit" into some hybrid made with cane with Booker Noe turning over in his grave!

There is a lot of neutral spirit made from molasses that from which gin and vodka are made. After all gin is flavored vodka, but don't let the gin geeks see me write that or I'll have to start a gin forum.

Ha! Thanks for the enlightenment Ed. My girlfriend has refused Vodka based drinks when and wherever offered,... plagued by distant memories of them sending her off to drive the porcelain bus once too many times. But she loves Gin based drinks. Ha! Perhaps this info will allow her to give up her prejudace and enjoy the joys of a well made Vodka coctail.

Seldom: If you want to re-introduce your gal to the noble neutral spirit may I suggest Double Cross Luxury Vodka from Slovakia or Uluvka from Poland both grain spirits, they are the best of the best in my humble estimation.

Hey Sylbaris, thanks for the recommendation. I'll put it on our search list. After showing my girlfriend the thread, she's decided to cautiously give Vodka based cocktails another chance.
