Thanks a lot for the huge amount of information.

To sum up, the distillery which probably made the King Kamehameha whiskey does not still exists. Therefore, it would need a lot of luck to get a (closed) bottle of this brand.

Nethertheless, thanks a lot for your help. If anybody has an idea where I could get a bottle, it would be great.

Peter

Bourbon can be made anywhere in the United States. ... Kentucky is the only state allowed to put its name on the bottle.



Doesn't that sound a bit contradictory? Perhaps they meant: "American whiskey from at least 51% corn and aged at least 2 years in new charred oak barrels can be made anywhere in the US but only when it's made in Kentucky can it be called bourbon".

I thought that too. After further reading it should say. It can only be called "Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey" if produced in Kentucky. Bourbon Whiskey is a process not a place name anymore. I also thought it was strange that the Federal Govenrment misspelled the the word "whiskey" as "whisky" all throughout the regulations regarding distilling it http://www.straightbourbon.com/27cfr5.pdf (have to go through mainpage and surf to faqs...sorry)

"Whisky" is the proper spelling for Scotch Whisky and others distilled in Wales Japan and Canada,and of course Scotland. "Whiskey" is proper for all others.
