I pledge, to open my heart and my taste buds
to the native spirit of the United States…BOURBON!
I acknowledge the history and heritage of this unique spirit.
I understand that all bourbon is whiskey,
but not all whisk[e]y, is bourbon.
I pledge to always have bourbon whiskey available.
With our hearts in our right hand, our right hand in theirs.
And in our left, a bottle of unequalled old bourbon.
This I pledge from this taste forward.
So raise an Evan Williams, or your favorite bourbon to salute our country’s
Native Spirit…BOURBON. CHEERS Y’ALL!
