By law, bourbon can only be produced in the United States, must be made with at least 51 percent corn, which provides sweetness. It must be distilled at 160 proof or less, put into the barrel at 125 proof or less and contain no additives. Furthermore, it must be aged in a new, oak-charred barrel for at least two years
