Ohio’s newest bourbon listing, W.H. Harrison, has a lot for Ohioans to cheer for. Although by federal definition Harrison is officially an “Indiana bourbon,” the name honors William Henry Harrison, a legendary figure in Ohio history who went on become the country’s ninth president.
Beyond the name, Harrison bourbons are distilled and aged in Lawrenceburg, Ind., near Cincinnati, then bottled in a small-batch facility in Temperance, Mich., near Toledo. All of which adds up to what Ohio fans can call their local bourbon.
