Whisky or whiskey is a type of distilled alcoholic beverage made from fermented grain mash. Various grains are used for different varieties, including corn, rye, and wheat. Whisky is typically aged in wooden casks.

There is no bad whiskey. There are only some whiskeys that aren’t as good as others.Raymond Chandler

A still for making whisky is usually made of copper, since it removes sulfur-based compounds from the alcohol that would make it unpleasant to drink. Modern stills are made of stainless steel with copper innards. The simplest standard distillation apparatus is commonly known as a pot still, consisting of a single heated chamber and a vessel to collect purified alcohol.

Age of a whisky

Love makes the world go round? Not at all. Whiskey makes it go round twice as fast.Compton Mackenzie

Whiskies do not mature in the bottle, only in the cask, so the “age” of a whisky is only the time between distillation and bottling. This reflects how much the cask has interacted with the whisky, changing its chemical makeup and taste. Whiskies that have been bottled for many years may have a rarity value, but are not “older” and not necessarily “better” than a more recent whisky that matured in wood for a similar time.

Whiskey, like a beautiful woman, demands appreciation. You gaze first, then it’s time to drink.Haruki Murakami

Whisky is probably the best known of Scotland’s manufactured products. Exports have increased by 87% in the past decade and it contributes over £4.25 billion to the UK economy, making up a quarter of all its food and drink revenues. In 2012, the US was the largest market for Scotch whisky, followed by France. Principal whisky producing areas include Speyside and the Isle of Islay, where there are eight distilleries providing a major source of employment.

As we begin to pick up the pieces of what is to come on the other side of all of this, we wanted to pick a spot today where, while keeping our ‘socially acceptable’ distance, we could still feel like we were at home to put our heads together in gratitude, anxiously planning for when we’re all able to greet one another with love and life through the music and lives that we all share so deeply together. So we picked THIS place!.. Mission Accomplished!.... We miss you ALLLLLL indeed ☝🏽💜🙏🏽 and cannot WAIT to see you ALL again! 🙌🏽 #NoPlaceLikeHome... ~C&O~
(Does anyone else miss this place like we do?)
