There are rules and standards that define bourbon as distinct from other whiskeys, but "made in Kentucky" is not a legal requirement. But it can't be labeled as if it's from Kentucky if it's not.
I thought that the state of Kentucky somehow had a trade name called bourbon, but if you guys got more on this I would be interested. I have seen how the State of Tennessee has been trying to trademark Tennessee Sour Mash Whiskey, somehow.

Bourbon does not have to be made in Kentucky, but "Kentucky Straight Bourbon" does. Tennessee whiskey is a bourbon in the sense that it is still distilled in the same manner, but prior to being aged in oak barrels it is filtered through charcoal in something known as the "Lincoln County Process." To me, that makes it a unique product from bourbon.

Yep. The truth of the matter is, calling Jack Daniel's "bourbon" is something that both Jack Daniel's and the Kentucky bourbon makers consider an insult. Not that there's a rivalry or anything.

Jack Daniels is actually FROM Louisville. Well it is owned by a Louisville company anyway.

Listen, Nashville has their thing as the country capital. Louisville is the bourbon capital of the world. By 2018, downtown Louisville alone should have around 7-8 distilleries just in the CBD.

Personally, I am excited about the growth along the I-65 corridor. The axis from Indy to Louisville to Nashville is becoming what the Denver-Boulder corridor is out west, or perhaps the Salt Lake Phoenix corridor.

The region is a great place and Nashville and Louisville are both BOOMING with cranes everywhere and new construction projects announced almost daily! I need to get together a list of all Louisville's development going on. It is not quite up to the Cranewatch list posted by Nashviille Biz Journals, but I am not kidding when I say it is not too far behind, and it is trending in that direction! Exciting times so lets all get along.

That doesn't seem very 'C-D' to me.

Louisville is in no way, shape, or form booming like Nashville. However, Louisville is experiencing modest growth and healthy infill that will make it very attractive for residents. I'm also cautious to think that Indianapolis will grow into Louisville and Louisville into Nashville, as there are vast amounts of agricultural land, preservation, terrain issues, and lack of economic growth in more rural areas of those states.

^^This. In 2014 the Nashville metro area had 14,944 new homes built, the Louisville metro had 4,011. Jefferson County (Louisville) had 2,431 new homes built while Davidson County (Nashville) had 6,413. Since 2010 the Louisville MSA has grown by 33,994 (2.75%) and now has 1,269,702. The Nashville MSA has grown by 121,759 (7.29%) and now has 1,792,649. It's not even close.

Wrong...Louisville is booming. Not as much as Nashville but it is booming...highrises, construction, apartments, condos, and restaurants announced weekly. Louisville's arts and restaurant scene along with cultural festivals are second to none in this region. What do you honestly know about Louisville? Have you driven it street by street like me? As well as I know the city, I was surprised by the amount of infill and historic rehabs even in BAD areas. Louisville has so many walkable, viable, architecturally unique neighborhoods...this is a vestige of its heritage as the historically second largest city in the south after New Orleans...you will not find the 19th century urban fabric in any southeast city like Louisville except for New Orleans, and on a smaller scale, places like Charleston and Savannah.

Nashville has its own cool vibe and is on probably the biggest boom in the SE, but it lacks the historic fabric to the degree Louisville did; Louisville was historically much larger until the last couple decades. This is not a city vs city pissing match. However, if you think Louisville is not booming, come up here and I will show you, in detail, block by block, what is being built or rehabbed.

My only point is Nashville is the country capital and music city. Louisville is the bourbon capital.

That is incorporating sprawl and cookie cutter development. I am talking urban city to urban city. Both cities are doing very well.

Those metro area numbers are bull. Sure, you have 1.8 million but that is in almost twice the land area!
(7,484 sq mi (19,380 km2) for Nashville compared to 4,135.4 sq mi (10,711 km2) for Louisville's MSA with 1.3 million. Louisville is a substantially denser, more compact, user friendly city and metro area.

Nashville's urban city is much smaller than Louisville's as it did not have the historic built environment

Louisville/Jefferson County is SMALLER in geographic area than Nashville/Davidson County but still has substantially more population, even with Nashville's recent growth. The Nashville boosterism here has gotten out of control as they try to bolster themselves away from their peer cities...

In reality, the Louisville-Frankfort-Lexington region along I-64 IS one region and its population is well in excess of 2.1 million. These two areas are not as different as you guys make them out to be.

And yet there were more homes built last year in the Nashville MSA (14,944) than there were in the entire state of Kentucky (9,536). Louisville is a nice enough place but to claim that it's booming like Nashville is simply not true. But kudos to Louisville for having some high-rises under construction.
