Types of Whisky

TYPES OF WHISKY

The amber nectar in your glass can be a single malt, a blended malt, a grain whisky or a blended whisky, and could have originated from countries as diverse as Scotland or India, so you can soon start to see what an intriguing and varied spirit whisky is – and why we say there is a whisky out there to suit everyone!

The types of whisk(e) you will come across will vary according to the country they come from but as regards whisky from Scotland the formal categories used by the Scotch Whisky Association are:

Single Malt Scotch Whisky
