New Rosen Exhibit – America’s Native Spirit: The History of Bourbon

Our latest exhibit follows the history of bourbon from its roots in American frontier life to modern prominence as an internationally recognized spirit. As Scotch is a distinct product of Scotland and Canadian Whisky originates in Canada, bourbon is a product that is uniquely American. The exhibit includes materials from the library’s collection paired with a selection of distinct bourbon brands. Special thanks to Dr. Marissa Orlowski of Rosen College and the Sazerac Company Archives for contributing items. The exhibit will be on display through Spring 2018.
