Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Balblair has one of the oldest set of records in Whisky history. The entry is dated January 25, 1800, and is written by John Ross himself. It reads: "Sale to David Kirkcaldy at Ardmore, one gallon of whisky at £1.8.0d." Cool, right?
The cherished water source is the Ault Dearg Burn (burn means stream).
