95% of the world’s bourbon is made in which U.S. state?
Answer: Whiskey may be made everywhere from Brooklyn to Scotland but in 1964, Congress declared bourbon “America’s Native Spirit.” That means to be called bourbon, it must be made in the United States. 95 percent of the world’s bourbon is made in Kentucky. Bourbon, by law, must be aged in a brand-new, charred white oak barrel to be called straight bourbon whiskey—that means, a barrel can only be used once for bourbon. In fact, there are more barrels of bourbon than people in Kentucky.
