Kentucky bourbon could be banned in Russia

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - Kentucky bourbon could soon be on the banned list in Russia.

The Moscow Times reports the country's consumer watchdog agency is apparently working to suspend imports of Kentucky Gentleman Bourbon.

It's one of several products Russia is working to ban since the West imposed new sanctions over the situation in Ukraine.

The watchdog agency says it found signs of organic chemicals in the bourbon, which is made in Bardstown by Barton Brands.

Currently, Kentucky Gentleman is the only brand of bourbon being banned.
