    Top Ten Rejected Bourbon Names

    Here's a game we can all play. Let's collectively develop a list of top ten rejected bourbon names. So more people can play, limit yourself to one entry. Here's mine:

    Number 10: Buffalo Truss

    --Chuck Cowdery

    Chuck,
    Does this list include brand names that were used but probably should never have been? If so there was a pre-prohibition brand from Daviess county I would nominate to your list.

    Number 8: Yellow Creek

    If you don't want actual brands from the past then I will have to go with a story from my United Distillers days. Gary and Mardee Regan were questioning Ed Foote about making a bourbon just the way he would like to do so. His reply was that he already did that with Old Fitzgerald and besides, "Old Foote" was not a very good name for a bourbon, so alternatively:

    Number 8: Old Foote

    The only criteria is that they should be funny, and both of those are cracking me up.

    Chuck,
    Since we were limited to one, I will let you be the judge as to which one makes your list.

    Jack & Jill Daniels.

    Mrs Daniels was a bit miffed to find out that she had been left off the name

    Chuck,
    Another post elsewhere reminded me of this series of posts. It also reminded me that I saw a Civil War reference to a distiller on Yellow Creek a couple of months ago.
