Even though Diageo owns the distillery, the White Horse emblem is still on the wall of the distillery, to show a respect for its roots.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
Founders invested £3,000 for the distillery. However they could only receive £4,000 after the auction, which happened just after a few months from the opening.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
