The Best Whiskey in Every State in the USA

You’ve heard it before but it bears repeating: We’re living in a golden age of whiskey. Never has more whiskey made in more places than right now. And that’s especially true here at home. After a decade-long craft distilling boom, it’s now possible to find top-quality bottles made in every state in the country.

That means you no longer have to rely on Kentucky or Tennessee to fill your whiskey cup; there’s good, local brown spilling out of Ohio, Massachusetts, New Mexico, even Hawaii. To help you navigate this new whiskey frontier, we chose the best bottle in each state (and none of that super-rare, buy-a-lottery-ticket whiskeys but stuff the average person can actually get their hands on). From bourbon to single malt to rye and everything in between, these are the best whiskeys from all 50 states.
