One day, just for fun, they put some rye whiskey into barrels originally used to age wine. When they mixed the Overmouth-ed and the syrah-ed they discovered an all-natural, not disgustingly sweet whiskey for the rest of us.
Where did Yippee Ki-Yay come from? Is it a real expression of joy popular with cowboys in the 19th century Western United States? Is it part of the greatest one liner in movie history? Was it influenced by the phrase Yippie-yi-yo-ki-yay from the 1936 hit song I'm an Old Cow Hand from the Rio Grande about a 20th-century cowboy who has little in common with cowpunchers of old and sung by Bing Crosby in the film Rhythm on the Range (also sung later by Roy Rogers and Frank Sinatra) and considered one of the Top 100 Western songs of all time? We're not sure. But we are sure we like how we feel when we say it... and recommend you use it every chance you get.
