This is the mixing and blending of Single Malt whiskies and grain whisky. This type of whisky came about in the mid nineteenth century when people started to want a more consistent and lighter more universally appealing drink. The big, strong and originally inconsistent single malts are tamed and smoothed by the lighter grain whisky. This is the most widely drunk whisky in the World accounting for about 90% of Scotch Whisky sales Worldwide. This type of whisky includes brands such as Famous Grouse, Bells, and Johnnie Walker.
