Collection: American Whiskey

American whiskey, also known as bourbon, is a type of whiskey that is produced in the United States. It is made from a mixture of grains, which typically includes at least 51% corn, along with rye, barley, and sometimes wheat. The mixture is fermented and then distilled to create a clear, high-proof spirit, which is then aged in charred oak barrels for a minimum of two years.

The aging process gives American whiskey its characteristic flavors and colors, which can range from golden to dark amber. During the aging process, the whiskey takes on flavors from the charred oak barrels, which can include notes of vanilla, caramel, and oak. The longer the whiskey is aged, the more complex and nuanced its flavor profile becomes.

American whiskey is regulated by the US government, which has strict standards for what can be labeled as bourbon. To be considered bourbon, the whiskey must be made in the US, contain at least 51% corn, be aged in new, charred oak barrels, and be bottled at a minimum of 80 proof. There are also other types of American whiskey, such as rye whiskey, which is made from at least 51% rye, and Tennessee whiskey, which is filtered through charcoal before aging.

Overall, American whiskey is a popular spirit that has a rich history and a unique flavor profile. Whether enjoyed neat, on the rocks, or in a cocktail, it is a versatile and complex drink that is beloved by whiskey enthusiasts around the world.
