The production of whisky - explicitly single malt

With the barley malt, whisky production starts on the malt floor. See how it was made in the past and how it is made today

After milling, the dried grain is soaked in water and the starch is converted into sugar.

The resulting sugar solution is mixed with yeast to ferment and produce the first alcohol.

The copper pot stills are the jewels in the crown of every distillery. Here you can find out what work they do.

The cask has the greatest influence on how a whisky tastes later on! And so the cask is particularly important to us.

The last step from the grain to the whisky bottle is the bottling plant. Then nothing stands in the way of enjoyment!

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, which is then matured into whisky.
