This is a list of whisky brands arranged by country of origin and style. Whisky (or whiskey)[1] is a type of distilled alcoholic beverage made from fermented grain mash. Different grains are used for different varieties, including barley, malted barley, rye, malted rye, wheat, and corn. Whisky is typically aged in wooden casks, made generally of charred white oak.

American whiskey[edit]

Thirteen large distilleries owned by eight companies produce over 99% of the whiskey made in the U.S.[2]

Of the thirteen, ten are in Kentucky, two are in Tennessee, and one is in Indiana. The three states are grouped together in the east-central mainland region of the United States.
