Bourbon is whiskey made in the USA. It’s at least 51 percent corn and is aged at least two years before being bottled. It’s also the base spirit for some of our favorite classic cocktails, including the Manhattan. On top of your favorite bourbon, the cocktail simply consists of vermouth and bitters. It’s a booze-filled potable that we enjoy whenever possible. Since we love the drink so much, we don’t want to get stuck on a single bourbon brand. Variety is the spice of a drinker’s life, after all. That’s why we ranked our favorite bourbons for mixing into a Manhattan.
