This page is about the consumable bourbon. For the two junk item variants, see (bourbon) bottle.

Bourbon is an alcoholic beverage in Fallout 4.


The effect of bourbon is very similar to that of vodka; both can increase current/maximum health in addition to a boost to carry weight/melee damage (and a penalty to experience earned).

Once a character is at level 30 or higher, bourbon will give a higher health boost than vodka (at level 30, one endurance yields 10 extra base health and 15 retroactive per-level health, matching the straight-up 25 health bonus of vodka).


When survival mode is active, this item increases thirst by 3.5 points.



  • The label references Old Appalachia which is most likely a reference to Kentucky bourbon, a popular version of bourbon from that region.
  • Bourbon is needed to craft berserk syringes.
