Single malt Scotch whiskies
Single malt scotch is a type of scotch whisky that is made from a single batch of malted barley. It is usually distilled in a pot still and is not blended with any other whisky. Single malt scotch is known for its rich flavour and depth of character. The history of single malt scotch dates back to the early 1800s when it was first produced in Scotland. Since then, it has become one of the most popular types of scotch whisky in the world. Single malt scotch is made by malting barley in a process known as ‘mashing’. The barley is then fermented and distilled in a pot still. The final product is then aged in oak barrels for a minimum of three years.
