Whisky poster: what is whisky made of?
The whisky or whiskey is obtained by distillation of malted or non-malted cereals.
Whisky poster: how is whisky made?
The whisky making process is divided into 5 phases: malting, brewing, fermentation, distillation and aging.
The malting is obtained by drying barley seeds that have been previously germinated. Seeds are dried over an oven. To obtain the smoky or peaty taste, peat is added to the fuel, which gives some whiskies their particular flavors. Once dry, the malt is ground, and sometimes mixed with other unmalted cereals.
The malt is then brewed with hot water. It is this water which will give all its character to the whisky, according to the grounds which it crossed: peat, mineral or ground of heather.
Yeast is added to the resulting must to transform it into alcohol, which is then sent to the stills for distillation. At the end of this stage, the whisky is colorless and about 70° vol.
Finally, the whisky is aged in oak barrels. It acquires its beautiful amber color and its aromas. Often the barrels used have for ageing whisky have already been used to age American Bourbon, Spanish Sherry, Portuguese Port or French wine.
