    UPC & EAN Codes

    This is my running collection of bourbon-related UPC and EAN barcode prefixes. UPC prefixes in the USA are 5 characters, started appearing in the late 1970’s, and became prevalent on labels around 1985. International EAN prefixes are 6 characters and appear more frequently on export bottles starting in the late-1990s.
