Canadian Whisky: Commonly created through a method of blending where each grain variety is distilled and aged separately to be blended only at the end of the process. Canadian whisky has to be matured in oak casks for a minimum of three years.
Scotch Whisky: Has to be produced from malted barley and matured in Scotland, aged in oak casks for a minimum of three years, with a minimum ABV of 40% and with no additives allowed other than water and caramel colouring. A single malt is made out of 100% malted barley from one single distillery
American Whiskey: The second biggest whisky producer after Scotland is the United States. The most popular American whisky is bourbon which is a mash of at least 51% corn and has to be aged in new, charred oak barrels, giving it the characteristic creamy, vanilla notes and subtle spiciness.
Japanese Whisky: The Japanese brought the knowledge of distilling from Scotland to Japan and established two of the biggest whisky companies in the country, respectively Nikka and Suntory. For this reason, Japanese whisky has a lot in common with Scotch.
Irish Whisky: Irish whiskey is famous for its smooth, light and creamy character, which is mainly attributed to the use of triple distillation. Irish whiskey once meant single pot still distillation, however other methods are used now.
Indian Whisky: Scotch whisky found its way to India in the 19th century, introduced to the country by the British. Amrut began procuring barley from Indian farmers in 1982, and by the tail end of the decade, Amrut had made their first batch of single malt whisky.
