LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A 50-year-old congressional resolution designating bourbon as America’s native spirit is going on display in the heart of bourbon country.

The resolution will be showcased starting Friday at a new exhibit at the Frazier History Museum in Louisville.

Kentucky Distillers’ Association President Eric Gregory calls it one of the most cherished pieces of bourbon history. He says the document recognizes bourbon as being distinctly American.

KDA board Chairman Joe Fraser says it’s the first time Senate Concurrent Resolution 19 has left the National Archives and Records Administration in Washington, D.C., since it was adopted by Congress in May 1964.

The KDA says the resolution is on a six-month loan from the National Archives as part of a bourbon history exhibit that includes distillery artifacts.
