We all associate bourbon with Kentucky. The best-known brands all hail from the Bluegrass State, and most of those distilleries are located in Bourbon County. So if it’s not from Kentucky, it ain’t bourbon, right? Wrong! In the case of bourbon, it ain’t where ya from, it’s where ya at. It can be made anywhere, as long as it’s made from more than 51% corn (the mash bill of most bourbons is about 70-80% corn, with rye and malted barley making up the rest). Today, there are quality bourbons being made all over the US-of-A, from Brooklyn to Portland and all points in between. (For the record, Tennessee sipping whiskeys like Gentleman Jack aren’t called bourbon for various reasons, but not being from Kentucky isn’t one of them.)
