Whiskey or Whiskey? In reality the difference between the two is important and it should be explained: it is called Whiskey if it comes from Scotland and Whiskey if we are talking about an Irish product.
The Scottish Whisky is 100% barley malt, it must rest in oak barrels for at least three years and the production must take place only and exclusively in Scotland, while the Irish Whiskey can contain a distillate of malt, barley and a portion of brandy cereals, and must be distilled three times and – like the Scottish one, it must age for at least three years.
Then we have the American Bourbon (initially produced in Kentucky) is instead a Whiskey obtained at least 51% of corn, rye and barley malt. We can find it for sale under the names Jim beam and Wild Turkey.
To conclude, we also mention the Whiskey Rye is produced like Bourbon but contains 51% rye (Wild Turkey Rye and Jim beam Rye), and the Japanese Whiskey which was born around the 20s of the last century and is inspired by Scottish Whiskey .
