American whiskey is a distilled beverage produced in the United States from a fermented mash of cereal grain.

The production and labeling of American whiskey are governed by Title 27 of the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations.

Outside of the United States, various other countries recognize certain types of American whiskey, such as bourbon and Tennessee whiskey, as indigenous products of the United States that must be produced (although not necessarily bottled) in the United States. When sold in another country, American whiskey may also be required to conform to other local product requirements that apply to whiskey in general when sold in that country, which may in some aspects involve stricter standards than the U.S. law

Some key types listed in the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations are:

Rye whiskey, made from mash that consists of at least 51% rye
Rye malt whiskey, made from mash that consists of at least 51% malted rye
Malt whiskey, made from mash that consists of at least 51% malted barley
Wheat whiskey, made from mash that consists of at least 51% wheat
Bourbon whiskey, made from mash that consists of at least 51% corn (maize)
Corn whiskey, made from mash that consists of at least 80% corn
