Overview of production in the different countries

On the following pages we have summarised the production of whisky for you and supplemented it with many photos and videos. Learn which steps are necessary to turn grain into a distillate that finally matures into whisky.

This is how single malt, the typical Scottish whisky made from barley malt, is produced.

Irish whiskey is not only spelled differently, but is also produced differently from Scotch whiskey.

Bourbon, the typical representative of the USA, is mainly based on corn as a grain.

By no means a 'bad copy' of Scotch whisky - meanwhile, it's not just sake that's being distilled.
