Bourbon is a style of corn-based, barrel-aged whiskey that originated in the southern United States.
The vast majority of Bourbon is made in Kentucky, which remains its spiritual home.
Other states produce Bourbon however, particularly Kentucky's neighbor Tennessee.
Under the North American Free Trade Agreement of 1994, Tennessee whiskey can be classified as Bourbon, although a number of well-known Tennessee whiskey producers opt not to use the term.
Other states which produce Bourbon include New York, Virginia, Illinois, Colorado and Massachusetts.
The name comes from Bourbon County in north-eastern Kentucky.
The county was named in honor of the House of Bourbon, the royal dynasty that ruled France at the time of American colonization. LEARN MORE Wine-Searcher's historical data and benchmark analysis provides trustworthy and valuable insights into likely market trends.
