Scotch Whiskey Varieties
Depending on the origin, Whisk (e) y comes in a wide variety of styles, from sweet American bourbon, caramel and vanilla to the single salty and peat-rich malt from Scotland. Although production methods vary widely, all whiskeys are made by distilling beer from a grain such as barley, corn, wheat or rye. After the distillation process is finished, the new pure alcohol is transferred to wooden barrels where it matures. This process can take up to thirty years or more. Alexander Fleming, the Scottish inventor of penicillin, prescribed it as a cure for the common cold. Today, single malt Scottish whiskeys are appreciated by enthusiasts and aficionados around the world for their rarity, age and complexity. By definition, they must be produced in Scotland, in a single distillery, and made entirely from barley for malt in a distillation still. The appearance, aroma and taste of single malt Scotch whiskey can vary widely, depending on whether it was produced in the Highlands, Lowlands, Speyside, Islay or Campbelltown regions.
About the Producer: Laphroaig
Laphroaig - Islay Distillery, one of the most famous single malt whiskeys. It is marketed as "the richest of all Scottish whiskeys" and is known for its strong peaty aromas. This is the only whiskey to receive the Royal Charter from the Prince of Wales in 1994. The distillery's history begins in 1815. Donald and Alexander Johnston had leased 1,000 acres (250 hectares) from Lord Islay a few years earlier. for raising livestock and growing barley for food. In 1815 they acquired a reputation for producing whiskey made from surplus crops using a soft peat water source with low mineral content. Distilling whiskey became more profitable. The upcoming Lagavulin factory played an important role in the history of Laphroaig in the 19th century. By the 1880s, Lagavulin's owners were buying about half of Laphroaig's output for their blended whiskey. The Johnston family decided to end this relationship to fully develop their own brand. This prompted Mackie & Co to sue them, making various attempts to buy Laphroaig, poaching, copying photos, trying to get recipes, and even blocking Laphroaig's water supply. The company remained independently owned and operated until the 1960s, when it was sold to Long John. International. It was acquired in 2011 by Beam Inc., which became part of Beam Suntory in 2014.
