Whisky is a distilled alcoholic beverage made from fermented grain mash. Assorted grains such as wheat, corn, barley, and rye are popular in making different whisky varieties. The drink is naturally ripened in white oak wooden casks. The longer the time it spends in the cask before bottling, the more mature it gets. Whisky has an alcohol volume of at least 40%-50%. Whisky is a strictly regulated spirit with many types and classes in the entire world.
Unlike in the old days when whisky was considered a drink for the older men, the time has changed, and the world has all sorts of people in all kinds of places. There is literally whisky for every occasion, which you can find at The Bottle Club.
