The Best Bourbon Bars in New York

Rum was the first spirit to make a splash in Colonial America. Then the founding fathers fast became besotted with rye. But it’s bourbon—which in 1964 a Congressional Resolution designated “a distinctive product of the United States”—that will forever be heralded as a decidedly American creation. The corn-centric whiskey, synonymous with Kentucky but made throughout the country, has New Yorkers hooked. Whether they are sipping a small-batch version alongside Southern-style pork or clamoring for it in a Manhattan at a glam cocktail bar, the blue-collar tipple is the star of many an evening out on the town. These 7 joints prove just how much New York has fallen for the brown stuff. Contributed by Alia Akkam
