Bourbon is an American form of whiskey named for Bourbon County, KY. By US law, it consists of at least 51% corn, but typically about 70%, with the remainder being wheat and/or rye, and malted barley. It is distilled to no more than 160 proof, and aged in new charred oak barrels for at least two years. The two-year maturation process is not a legal requirement for whiskey to be called "bourbon", but is a legal requirement for "straight bourbon". However, most bourbon whiskey is aged for at least four years.
