Single Malt Whiskey

Single malt whisk(e)y is distilled by a single distillery from 100% barley. Single malts can be produced anywhere in the world, although Scotch single malts remain the most recognized by the consumers. Scotland has one of the oldest whisky distilling traditions on the world, going back as far as mid 15th century. Today there are hundreds of operational single malt distilleries in Scotland, with new distilleries being built and math-balled distilleries being revived due to the world’s increasing demand for malt whisky. Scotland can divided into several whisky producing regions: Highlands, Lowlands, Islands, Isle of Islay, Speyside and Campbeltown. Every region is known for a certain unique taste profile of whisky, ranging from light and fruity, such as Lowland whisky, to heavily peated malts, such as Islay whiskies.
