Why you will love studying about Scotch whisky
Whisky has easy substances: barley, wheat or rye, yeast and water. The Scots drink it straight or with a touch of water.
However the drink can be advanced. There’s an abundance of various ‘cask strengths’, ‘blended malts’, and ‘single grains’. Take a tour and study the nuances.
Whisky makers say distilleries are in distant places due to recent water sources. However this isn’t all the time true.
Within the 18th century, distillers relocated to keep away from tax collector routes. This was dangerous for distillers, however it’s nice if you wish to get pleasure from a dram close to a pleasant view.
Distillers prevented tax by malting at evening. Glaswegians rioted when Britain imposed a malt tax. And dragoons and highwayman patrolled the roads trying to find whisky smugglers.
Take a whisky tour and let your information deliver the historical past to life.
