There are several requirements in place regarding whether or not whiskey can be considered bourbon. Not only does bourbon have to be distilled to no more than 160 proof and aged in new, American charred oak barrels, but it also has to be made from at least 51% corn. However, the grains that constitute the remaining 49% of the mash bill is left to the discretion of individual distillers—and it’s largely responsible for giving each brand and bottle its unique characteristics.
