(video by Lynn Sweet)

DANVILLE, KY--Vice President Joe Biden and Rep. Paul Ryan face off Thursday in their one and only debate in a state that is the birthplace of Bourbon. Before the debate at Centre College, a variety of Kentucky distillers offered samples at a welcome reception on Wednesday night. In the video above, I talked with Eric Gregory, the president of the Kentucky Distillers Association, about why Kentucky Bourbon is special.

From "Total Bourbon inventory reached 4.7 million barrels in 2010, the highest it's been since 1982. That means there are more barrels of Bourbon aging in the Commonwealth than
there are people (4.3 million)."
