Where, when and how Bourbon first originated from is not entirely clear, there are plenty of claims, however the credibility varies. There is an ongoing dispute about the origin of the name between Bourbon County in Kentucky and Bourbon Street in New Orleans, each side with there own stories. The likelihood is that the creation of Bourbon is as a result of French, Scottish, Irish, English and German settlers bringing their knowledge of distilling to America.
The French settling in New Orleans bringing their knowledge of Brandy production meeting with Irish Whiskey distillers are likely to have had the most influence in the birth or Bourbon. Bourbon is made to strict standards, it must be produced in the U.S. it must be made from at least 51% corn, it can only be aged in new charred oak barrels and cannot be bottled at less than 40% ABV. While these standards sound restrictive the range and variety of Bourbons is similar to that of Scottish whisky, sweet, smoky, dry, smooth all can be found on the Bourbon trail.
