Etymology[edit]

From "bourbon whiskey", originally "Bourbon whiskey", of disputed provenance. Generally taken to derive from Bourbon County, Kentucky, but possibly also from Bourbon Street in New Orleans, Louisiana.[1]

Both derive from the French Bourbon dynasty, named for the lordship of French Bourbon l'Archambault. The town's name derives from Borvo, a local Celtic deity associated with hot springs, from Proto-Celtic *borvo (froth, foam), from Proto-Indo-European *bʰrewh₁- (to be hot, boil). See also Borvo.

Pronunciation[edit]

whiskey
  • IPA(key): /bɜː(ɹ)bən/

    • 1946, George Johnston, Skyscrapers in the Mist, page 17:
      It concerns the gnomelike quality of the average American at a party. I have been to many parties where staid American business men have been transformed by a few ryes or bourbons into unpredictable gremlins out for adventure.
