Whisky

In general, Whisky is a beverage distilled from malt fermentation. Malt is any grain that germinated and then dried. There are 4 main differences between the types of whisky: the grain used, the production process, the origin of manufacture and the maturation time. The first evidence of distillation in Scotland dates from the 15th century and the first whiskey was a drink widely used as a medicine in the treatment of various diseases. Originally produced by monks, whisky production went to Scottish homes and farms after the closure of monasteries ordered by King Henry VII. Time passed and the whisky production process was refined, making the drink practically a "staple food" in Scotland.

Summary of Whisky Types - Scotch Whisky: To be considered a Scotch whisky, the drink must be made in Scotland, with malted barley or grains and aged in oak barrels for at least 3 years; Irish Whisky: More fruity and slightly peppery, they are made from a mixture of non-smoked and toasted barley and are triple distilled, making them softer; Japanese Whisky: In less than a century of history (since 1920), Japanese whisky has managed to surpass traditional manufacturers and, in 2014, it was considered the best whisky in the world. Produced in a similar way to Scotch whisky, the whiskies from the Yamazaki distillery undergo a more prolonged fermentation process and their maturation also goes through Japanese oak barrels; American whiskies: American whiskies are divided into three main categories, Bourbon, Tennessee and Rye (which is also produced in Canada). In the first category, there are 3 different varieties: Bourbon (made from malted grains, at least 51% of which must be corn), Straight Bourbon (aged at least two years and without additives, such as flavors or dyes) Blended Bourbon (which can be include other alcoholic beverages and flavors). Tennessee has a production method identical to Bourbon, the difference is in the filtering process in a kind of molasses, adding an even sweeter flavor. Rye whisky, with a spicy and fruity flavor, which makes it perfect for cocktails, has the same production rule as Bourbon, but the recipe takes at least 51% of rye. Canadian Rye, on the other hand, may contain much less than 51% of rye and there are no restrictions on the mix of grains used in their production, as long as the final flavor maintains its fruity and peppery characteristics.
