Whisky was once the pastime of men in suits, but the landscape is quickly changing. Distilleries are popping up all over the world, recipes are being experimented with and the most famous distilleries are seeing huge boosts in sales. Lots of different people buy whisky these days, so what exactly is happening?
It’s simple, whisky is becoming more popular all over the world. A craft-whisky industry is rising, and more people than ever are enjoying the delights of a fine glass of whisky from Edinburgh to Tokyo.
Single malts are the more traditional types of whiskies, and they have been produced for hundreds of years right here in Scotland — exclusively made with Scottish water and matured on Scottish soil for a minimum of three years in oak casks.
Blended whiskies are made by combining single-malt whiskies from different distilleries. The best-blended whiskies include Big Peat, Black Bull, Chivas Regal and Rock Island.
Grain whisky is made at one distillery using a continuous still and using grains other than malted barley. Often misunderstood and sadly ignored, grain whiskies have a lot to offer and are worth exploring.
