Collection: Bourbon

Bourbon is a type of primarily corn-based whiskey that is made in the United States and aged in new charred-oak barrels. Although it legally must contain 51% corn in the mash (or total makeup of grains), most bourbons are often made with anywhere from 60–86% corn. The other grains in a bourbon can vary, but may include rye, wheat, or barley. There are no regulations as to how long bourbon must age, but to be labeled straight bourbon it must age for at least two years in new charred oak.
