What is Whisky?

Whisky is a distilled spirits alcohol made from fermented grains such as barley, corn, rye and wheat. The production of whisky is heavily regulated, with numerous categories with set rules that must be followed in order to qualify.

The flavour of good whisky that we know and love comes from the maturation step of the production process. During this step, the new grain whisky is aged in casks of wood where it matures, regulates its alcohol content and acquires the depth of flavour we like so much.

 

Types of Whisky

 

Single Malt Whisky

Single malt whisky is produced in distilleries that use single malted grain and typically age their alcohol in old bourbon casks. This whisky is famously made in Scotland, Ireland and Australia, with countries like Japan also storming the market with excellent bottles like the Hakushu Single Malt Whisky.

 

Blended Whisky

In much the same way as blended red wine types allow winemakers to showcase their craft, blended whisky is made up of whiskies with different characteristics. Examples of famous blended whiskies that are greater than the sum of their parts are Chivas Regal, Ballantines and Monkey Shoulder.

 

Bourbon

The Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whisky sums up this wonderful style of whisky that hails from the USA. Bourbon must be made from a minimum of 51% corn, aged in new charred oak barrels and distilled in keeping with strict regulations.
