Scotch Facts!

-The age written on a bottle of whiskey represents only the minimum time of aging for that malt, some may be aged longer.
-To make any scotch whiskey, it has to be aged for, at the very least, three years.
-A single malt scotch is produced from only two actual ingredients: water and malted barley.  It is the nuances of the materials used to fire the kiln that dries the barley, and the nature of the water added that gives each its own distinctive taste.
-The first dated scotch distilleries were in 11th century monasteries!

That's it for today!

Best, Colin
