10 Bottles That Prove Some of the Best Bourbon Isn’t From Kentucky

It’s a common misconception that Bourbon must be produced in Kentucky to be called Bourbon. But of all the regulations that govern the spirit, being distilled in Kentucky is not one of them.

The corn-based mash gives a richer sweeter tasting whisky making it great for sipping but it is also great for cocktails. While the vast majority of Bourbon comes from Kentucky, stand-out offerings are being made across the U.S.

From Texas to Kansas, and even an Indiana Bourbon cut with water from the Pacific, here are some of our favorites.
