The history of American Whiskey began in the 1700s when pioneers started making whiskey using corn, rye, or barley as their base. These pioneers settled in the Appalachian Mountains and passed down this tradition to their children. The first commercial distilleries emerged soon after and by 1800 there were hundreds of them all over America. Today, small-batch and micro distilleries keep pushing the boundaries, while worldwide brands like Jack Daniel’s keep American whiskey on everyone's lips. Shop our American whiskey collection below.
