The Scottish will tell you that every whisky has its own style.However, in the five production areas, these spirits reveal certain similar characteristics.
How could it be otherwise? Scotch whiskies bear the mark of their territory, from the uneven terrains of the Isle of Skye to the rich plains of Speyside. The environment, soil, and time leave their mark at every stage of whisky production.
Regular rainfall ensures a constant supply of water, an essential raw material in whisky-making.
The fertile land allows farmers to grow their generous barley, transformed by the expertise of Scottish distilleries.
Finally, the climate, with its warm summers and moderate winters, nurtures whisky’s slow maturation process. The angels also take their share from these slumbering barrels.
Over time, flavours are developed and the Scots’ precious gold becomes smoother. Strength and finesse, such is the character of Scotch whisky.
