Grain whisky is made from any cereal grains, although in practice today maize (corn) is most widely used. Unlike single malt whiskies, grain whisky is normally distilled in a column still rather than a potstill, meaning far greater volumes can be produced. Grain whiskies are the main ingredient in most blended Scotch whisky. Read More »

It's been getting great reviews and we're rather pleased with it.
