Scotland is the undisputed World leader in the production of whisky. The pure water, the peat bogs, the climate is perfect for slow excellent maturation, it was designed with whisky making in mind. Single Malt Scotch Whisky is, in our opinion, not only the best whisky in the World, but the best Alcoholic beverage of any type in the World. When whisky is made out of malted barley in Scotland it is done with tradition and skill, each distillery doing things slightly differently so each Single Malt has its unique character. This is what makes Single Malt Whisky so great. The other type of whisky made in Scotland is Grain Whisky. This is made on a more industrial scale using a column or Coffey still. Grain whisky is lighter and more consistent in flavour. It is most commonly used in Blended Whisky.
