One day, just for fun, they put some rye whiskey into barrels originally used to age wine. When they mixed the Ôvermouth-edÕ and the Ôsyrah-edÕ they discovered an all-natural, not disgustingly sweet whiskey for the rest of us.
Where did ÒYippee Ki-YayÓ 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 ÔYippie-yi-yo-ki-yayÕ from the 1936 hit song ÒIÕm an Old Cow Hand from the Rio GrandeÓ about a 20th-century cowboy who has little in common with cowpunchers of old and sung by Bing Crosby in the film ÒRhythm on the RangeÓ (also sung later by Roy Rogers and Frank Sinatra) and considered one of the Top 100 Western songs of all time? WeÕre not sure. But we are sure we like how we feel when we say it... and recommend you use it every chance you get.
