The Origins of Bourbon

Bourbon is a type of whiskey that is predominantly produced in the US state of Kentucky. According to the Kentucky Distillers' Association, as of 2018 an estimated 95% of all bourbon production was originating from within the state. Over the past decade, the number of whiskey distilleries operating in Kentucky has increased by 250%, with 68 currently in operation.

Generally speaking, for a whiskey to be classified as a bourbon it must meet certain criteria; it must be made in the United States, distilled from no less than 51% corn and aged in new charred oak barrels. The mash bill (grain recipe) of a typical bourbon may also include rye and malted barley, and it must be aged for at last two years before being bottled at no less than 80 proof.

Bourbon production is not limited to just Kentucky though; while the vast majority comes from within that state, there are many smaller distilleries across the country which produce their own unique varieties. This includes states like Virginia, , Colorado and New York which all have bourbons produced within their borders.
