What is whisky?

Whisky or whiskey is a type of distilled alcoholic beverage made from fermented grain mash. Besides ingredients and ageing, the different varieties emerge from different places of production. Whisky is spelled without the “e” if it is Scotch whisky, made in Scotland. This is also Canada’s spelling of whisky. Whiskey with the “e”, on the other hand, may be produced in Ireland or the US for instance such as bourbon whiskey. The typical unifying characteristics of the different whisky classes and types are the fermentation of grains, distillation, and ageing in wooden barrels.

Whisky: Quality in drinking worldwide

Whisky is a strictly regulated spirit worldwide with many classes and types. Whiskies differ in their base product, alcohol content and quality. Grains that can produce whisky include corn, wheat, barley, malted barley, rye and malted rye. Malt whisky is made primarily from malted barley, while grain whisky is made from any type of grain. Each whisky type has certain characteristics that makes it unique in its kind. As a whisky supplier, we offer blended tastes that cater to your preference. We are ablet to provide flavours that can range from light and sweet to smoky and spicy.

We have detailed product pages for each type featured in our selection. Get in touch to find out which bulk whisky/whiskey is right for your business.

Applications and Use

The primary use of whisky is the consumption of it as an alcoholic beverage. Some people may use whisky as a substitute to rubbing alcohol, as it can help to disinfect wounds if there is an absence of another disinfectant such as rubbing alcohol. However, this is usually in cases of emergency.

 

HOW ITS MADE

The general production process of whisky is usually the same across the different styles of whisky being made. Grains that can produce whisky include corn, wheat, barley, malted barley, rye, and malted rye. However, there are other factors including the country where it is made that affect production of the spirit. The following process is a general representation of the production of whisky.

STEP ONE

Malting

All types of Whisky are started as a raw grain. Specifically for malt whisky, barley is used; this must be specially treated to properly access the sugars. The process of malting is when the barley is moistened and typically is allowed to germinate. During this process, an enzyme is releases that converts the starches into sugars in the barley. When the barley is heated to dry it out, the germination is cut off.

 

STEP TWO

Mashing

During this step, the sugars in the grain are extracted prior to fermentation. The chosen grain is ground up and put in a mash tub with hot water until they are agitated. It is typical that some ground malted barley is added to catalyze the reaction to turn starches into sugars, regardless of if they are making malt whisky or not.

 

STEP THREE

Fermentation

After the sugar has been extracted, the mash is ready for fermentation. The mash is now combined with yeast, which will convert the sugars in the liquid into alcohol. This process takes place in washbacks, which are giant vats that hold all the mixture and can take anywhere ranging from 48 to 96 hours. The flavor of the mixture will depend on the length of fermentation.

 

STEP FOUR

Distillation

During distillation, the alcohol content of the liquid will increase and will trigger both the good and the bad volatile components of the liquid. Throughout this process, the whisky is heated, condensed, and collected repeatedly. It occurs in stills, which are made of copper to get rid of unwanted odors and flavors in the spirit. There are many different types of stills used in the production of whisky depending on a variety of factors; the two most common types are pot stills and column stills.

 

STEP FIVE

Maturation

All whiskies are aged in wood containers, which are usually made of oak. One exception to this is corn whisky, which can be either aged or unaged. The type of oak that is used for the containers the whisky will mature is typically depends on the type of whisky that is being produced. During maturation, some of the alcohol content within the whisky will evaporate. Scotch is an example of a whisky that has a required minimum age for maturation.

 

STEP SIX

Bottling

After the maturation process is complete, the whisky will be bottled at a minimum of 40% ABV. In some productions of whisky, it may be chill filtered. This is a way to prevent the whisky from clouding when ice or cold water is added to the spirit. Large whisky brands may choose to bottle a large number of barrels from the warehouse.
