Let’s celebrate World Whisky Day, the Dairy Diary way!
Did you know?
Whisky or whiskey is a type of distilled alcoholic beverage made from fermented grain mash.
The distinctive smoky flavour found in various types of whisky, especially Scotch, is due to the use of peat smoke to treat the malt.
Whisky is typically aged in wooden casks, generally made of charred white oak.
With a value of £4.359 billion, Scotch whisky exports accounted for over 20 per cent of all UK food and drink exports (2017).
Some 34 bottles of whisky are exported from Scotland every second.
Whisky in Gaelic reads ‘uisge beathe’, which means ‘water of life’
