Whisky is created by distilling grain mash which is then matured in oak barrels for at least three years.
The most famous whiskies are Scotch, Bourbon and Irish Whiskey, but Japanese Whisky is also becoming increasingly popular amongst whisky enthusiasts.
Whisky or Whiskey?
The naming is different from country to country.
In the United States of America Bourbon, Rye and Tennessee Whiskey is usually spelt with an "e".
The Irish Whiskey is also spelt with an "e". Scotch Whisky is however written without an "e".
In all other Whisky producing countries "Whisky" is spelt without the “e “.
