Making Your Own Scotch Is Easy: Follow These 14 Steps

Creating Flaviar’s first Whisky was quite an operation…(which rhymes with frustration)... but eventually, we ended up with 8 different single malts that we got to blend this past August. To do that, we travelled to Thornhill, Scotland, roughly two hours from Edinburgh, where Son of a Peat was finally conceived.

So, here's our "How to create your own Scotch" guide in pics.
