Best Bourbons Under $40

The Best Budget Bourbons

By Kayleigh Kulp

There's almost nothing more American to drink than bourbon. For one thing, bourbons must be made and aged in the United States to be labeled as such, from at least 51 percent corn. The remainder of the mash, or the recipe of grains, must be barley, rye or wheat. It’s aged at least two years in new, charred oak barrels, which gives many bourbons their vanilla, woody and caramel notes. GAYOT's Best Bourbons Under $40 are exceptional values that are ideal for holiday entertaining or everyday sipping.
