Types of Whiskey

Know your whiskey

Whiskey (or whisky if it’s from Scotland or Canada) is the water of life, or at least that’s where it gets its name. It comes from the Gaelic phrase Uisge Beatha, shortened to Uisge, you know—whiskey. Whiskey is made from grain (typically barley, corn, rye or wheat), distilled in wood barrels, and it contains at least 40% ABV (alcohol by volume). That’s just the start, though—check out what makes each type unique.
