NATIONAL SCOTCH DAY
On July 27, we recognize an aged whisky distilled from malted barley. It is National Scotch Day!
This particular whisky first and foremost must be made in Scotland. It must be fermented from malted barley, aged in oak barrels for at least three years and have an ABV of less than 94.8%. While most Scotch is made with barley, water and yeast, other grains can be included, but no fermentation additives, per law.
There are five distinct categories of Scotch whisky including single malt Scotch, single grain Scotch, blended malt Scotch, blended grain Scotch and blended Scotch.
