About Scotch Whisky
Scotch Whisky is a versatile and unique alcoholic drink, produced only in Scotland though enjoyed around the world. To be legally called "Scotch Whisky", it must be distilled in Scotland from natural ingredients, water, yeast, malted barley and other cereals. It must also be matured in Scotland for a minimum of three years in oak wood casks.

Types of Scotch
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is the product of only one distillery and must be made from malted barley. Spirit is produced in the traditional batch process of mashing, fermentation, distillation in copper stills, and maturation.
Blended Scotch Whisky is made from a mixture of single malt and grain Scotch whiskies, which have been expertly selected to complement one another.
Grain Scotch Whisky is made from a mixture of different cereal grains, in a continuous process, using column stills. It has a mild, balanced flavour, which acts as a base for the more flavoursome single malts.
