30 Origins of Alcohol Brand Names

(YouTube link)

Just about every alcohol brand name comes from a real person, even Crown Royal, although that person often didn't have anything to do with developing the drink. And the ones that weren't named after a real person may surprise you. If you ever wondered where the names of your favorite whiskeys, vodkas, and other distilled beverages came from, John Green probably has that information right at his fingertips. Yeah, and some wines, too. I do have a bone to pick with one throwaway line, though. Sure, everyone in Kentucky was in the whiskey business at one time or another, but Jack Daniels is from Tennessee. However, the name origins are the subject of the latest episode of the Mental Floss List Show.
