American Whiskey Varieties
American whiskey is whiskey (a distilled beverage made from fermented grain puree) produced in the United States. The main types of American whiskey are bourbon whiskey, rye whiskey, rye malt whiskey, malt whiskey, wheat whiskey, Tennessee whiskey and corn whiskey. All of them are made from mashed potatoes containing at least 51% of the aforementioned grains.
Mixed whiskeys, whiskey blends, grain whiskeys and distilled whiskeys that do not indicate a dominant grain are also included. ... In the case of blends, American whiskey can include artificial colors and flavors. The laws governing the above products differ between products made for consumption in the United States and those exported abroad.
With a wide variety in one category, American whiskey refers to any spirit drink made in America distilling fermented grain must - usually corn, wheat, rye or barley. American whiskey must be distilled to a maximum alcoholic strength of 95% and bottled with an alcoholic strength of 40% or higher. To be called pure whiskey, it must also be aged in white oak barrels for at least two years and must not contain any added color or flavor.
Bourbon is most often associated with Bourbon County, Kentucky, although technically it can be produced anywhere in the United States. Kentucky is traditionally where American bourbon has been produced since the late 18th century. To be considered a bourbon whiskey, the drink must contain at least 51% corn and must be aged in new carbonized white oak barrels. Bourbon whiskey is available in bottles of eighty ABV (40% ABV) or more and cannot contain any color or aroma additives. A versatile alcohol that can be drunk pure, with water or ice, also goes well with cocktails like an Old Fashioned.
About the Producer: Jim Beam Distillery
Jim Beam Distillery in Claremont and Boston, Kentucky is home to the world's best-selling bourbon whiskey brand. The factory's history is longer than that of any family business in Scotland. Jacob Beam (originally Bem) opened a Washington County distillery in 1795. In 1854, his grandson moved the business closer to the railroad to Clear Springs. After Prohibition ended in 1933, the determined 70-year-old Jim Beam built a new distillery in Clermont. His great-grandson Fred Noe (son of the legendary Booker Noe) now runs it, and his brother Jim Park's grandsons run Haven Hill. In 2014, Beam Inc. was purchased by Suntory and became part of the Beam Suntory group. The strength and position of the barrel play an important role in determining the flavor of a Jim Beam bottle. The original Kentucky Direct Bourbon (white mark) and black goes into the barrel at 62.5 percent (125 carats) and is spread over all levels and corners of the warehouses. The Devil's Cut label is a robust version influenced by the highly fragrant liquid extracted from the used wood of the barrel. Jim Beam makes several other whiskeys, including pure rye and a variety of limited edition finishes. The distillery also produces small batches from brands such as Knob Creek, Basil Hayden and Booker's.
