Kentucky Republican Celebrates ‘Bourbon Barrel of Compromise’

Lawmakers from across the Capitol poured into the Willard Hotel Tuesday to honor the unique flavor bourbon has contributed to Congress.

The feel-good presser was the brainchild of the Henry Clay Center for Statesmanship and the Kentucky Distillers’ Association; the former provided historical context while the latter kept the predominantly Southern crowd in good spirits.

Kentucky Republican and proud member of the Congressional Bourbon Caucus Andy Barr addressed the crowd at the event, discussing the history of Henry Clay and his significance to Kentucky.
