Whiskey Whiskers: Bourbon Grooming Products for Celebrating National Bourbon Day

Olivina Men, national bourbon day

Celebrated for its sweet, smooth flavor, so beloved is bourbon that, in 1964, a Congressional Resolution designated it America’s “native spirit;” in 2007, we saw the birth of National Bourbon Heritage Month; and for decades, happy summertime revelers have been celebrating National Bourbon Day on June 14. The history of National Bourbon Day is a tangle of legend and missing pieces, but don’t worry! There’s still plenty of reason to celebrate this patriotic potable. Naturally, you’ll want to toss back a glass of your favorite bourbon, but with their line of bourbon-inspired grooming products, Olivina Men has another way to celebrate, too.

Bourbon is distinctly American not only because it was invented in the United States, but because its ingredients themselves are steeped in American tradition. Corn was originally used to distill the sweet whiskey because it was the primary native grain of Kentucky. The water was ideal for distilling whiskey because it came from the Limestone Shelf. And the tradition of burning the inside of bourbon barrels started with one man in Bourbon County, Kentucky in the late 1780s. When all of these critical ingredients came together, early settlers knew they had something good. Olivina’s products mirror this tradition, using high-quality, natural ingredients to create formulas that truly stand out, and all of the products in their Bourbon Cedar line pay homage to the popular American spirit with a fragrance that is alluringly sweet, with warm undertones and refreshing pops of cedar.
