European immigrants brought the craft of whisky production to the New World. Today, whisky production in the USA is mainly dominated by a few large distilleries, which are mostly located in Kentucky or Tennessee. There are also many smaller producers spread all over the country.

Over the decades, traditional Irish and Scottish distillation methods have changed and raw materials such as corn, rye and wheat have been preferred to traditional barley. In order to achieve a mild taste and to shorten the maturing time, in the USA freshly distilled whisky is usually matured in charred casks. Many different types of whisky are produced in this process: Corn Whiskey, Rye Whiskey, Moonshine, Bourbon, Tennessee Whiskey, Single Barrel Whiskey or Small Batch Whiskey. However, many of these varieties do not meet the strict regulations of the European Union for whiskey. Some of them, for example, have a clear colour and are stored for much less than 3 years. In general, American whisky rarely stays in casks for more than 12 years.

As in Ireland, the word whisky is also written with an additional "e" in the USA (whiskey).
