LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Here's something to drink to: Kentucky Bourbon Distilleries break a big record, dating all the way back to the late-1960s.

Kentucky distilleries filled more than 1.8 million barrels of amber nectar last year.

Since the turn of the century, Kentucky bourbon production has skyrocketed by more than 315 percent.

There are now 1.5 barrels for every person living in the state of Kentucky.
