The November issue of Wine Enthusiast contains an article on the various families associated with the bourbon industry. The article will show up on their website www.winemag.com sometime next month. It focuses on the various families associated with both the making of bourbon and owning the distilleries. As we know, who owned what, when, etc has evolved over time, but F. Paul Pacult seems to get it mostly right based on my limited knowledge. He has an interesting table at the end of the article listing family names on the left column and the various important bourbon's associated with each name on the right column. As we know, the Beam name show's up everywhere.

Not a bad article considering the source.....and its targeted audience.....wine drinkers.
