Single Malt Whisky Exchange
Single Malt Whisky
There are only 3 ingredients used in the production of Scotch whisky – barley, yeast and water. There are literally hundreds of different types of whiskies to choose from. To be called a single malt whisky, it must have been produced at a single distillery, aged in oak barrels for at least 3 years in Scotland and bottled with an alcohol content of at least 40%. The most popular single malt whiskies are Glenfiddich and Glenlivet
Blended Scotch Whisky
Blended Scotch whisky is a blend of malt and grain whiskies from various distilleries. The cheaper the blend, then the more grain whisky is in the blend. If the bottle has an age statement on it, then it will be the age of the youngest whisky. Blended whiskies are of various quality. The most popular blended Scotch whisky in the world is Johnnie Walker, who grade their whiskies by colour – Red is the cheapest and Blue Label the most expensive.
The Whisky Exchange
The Whisky Exchange has one of the largest selections of whisky online. In fact, it is sometimes easier to find single malt whiskies there than in whisky shops in Scotland! They have over 5000 whiskies available for sale and they export to most countries in the world! Every year they hold a whisky exchange in London with presentations of exclusive and rare single malt whiskies, blended whiskies and world whiskies. They also sell other spirits.
