How many types of scotch whisky

 

There are two basic types of Scotch whisky:

  1. Single malt Scotch whisky means a Scotch whisky produced from only water and an individual distillery.
  2. Single grain Scotch whisky like Single Malt Scotches, Single Grain Scotches must be produced in only one distillery. The key difference between Single Malts and Single Grains are that Single Grains are made from cereal grains other than just malted barley. This can include corn, wheat or unmalted barley, just to name a few. Single Grains can contain some malted barley, but it must contain other grains as well in order to be considered a Single Grain Scotch whisky.
