What’s the difference between bourbon and whiskey?
A whiskey is considered “bourbon” when it is made from at least 51% corn, which provides sweetness, plus rye or barley grains.
Bourbon is aged in new, oak-charred barrels for at least two years. Mix it with soft drinks, water, ice, or enjoy neat – or enjoy it in a cocktail, like a Mint Julep or an Old Fashioned.
