Whiskey, Bourbon & Scotch

All about Whiskey
Whiskey is a smooth and well-balanced drink of choice for many. Commonly sipped over ice or with citrus garnishes, whiskey is a bold yet simple alcohol. Distilling it, however, is not so simple. Creating the perfect whiskey is tedious, precise, and time-consuming. While the process can vary by state or distillery, there are similarities between all whiskey-making processes. The core ingredients of whiskey are water, grains, barley, corn, rye, wheat, yeast and other non-traditional grains can be included on the ingredients list. It is believed that Scotland is to thank for whiskey. The first distillation occurred in Scotland in the early 1000s AD and spread to the Americas and European colonists from there. In America, whiskey was a political topic as we faced whiskey taxes, prohibition, and, later on, the naming of bourbon. Bourbon is typically a mostly corn whiskey. As with most things, over the years, the process has been refined to include more advanced technology to create your favorite alcoholic beverage. Part of these advancements includes different types of whiskey and bourbon, such as America-made bourbon, Tennessee whiskey, Japanese whiskey, and rye whiskey. With the booming whiskey market, distillers continue to find ways to innovate the whiskey-making process and create new whiskeys to try. With an ABV of 40%-50% on most whiskey labels, a glass of whiskey makes for the perfect nightcap, afternoon relaxation, or drink of choice to cheers and sip to celebrate.

Tennessee whiskey: Most notably, when you think of Tennessee whiskey, Jack Daniels probably comes to mind. Stamped loud and clear on Jack Daniel’s packaging, it says “Tennessee Whiskey.” Without that, though, here are a few ways to identify Tennessee whiskey. • Made in Tennessee. • 51% corn (minimum). • Distilled at a max of 160 proof. • Barreled at a max of 125 proof. • Put into a new, charred oak barrel. Tennessee whiskey is known for a smoother and slightly sweeter taste with hints of vanilla, caramel, and brown sugar. Peanut butter whiskey: While we are all entitled to our own opinions, some think peanut butter whiskey is the best alcohol ever made. Some versions of it quite literally taste just like peanut butter with a slight tingle of alcohol. It’s exactly what it sounds like - the combination of peanut butter and whiskey. It might sound unconventional, but hear us out when we say to try it. Even those who don’t love whiskey can love peanut butter whiskey. Skrewball Peanut Butter Whiskey is a popular choice. It’s a smooth and sweet peanut butter whiskey with an affordable price tag, add it to your cart and get it delivered to your door. Bourbon whiskey: While we will submerge into the details later, bourbon is usually a term for whiskey. Whiskeys that are made from a grain mixture that’s at least 51% corn can fall under the bourbon category. Most bourbon is produced in Kentucky. Whiskey is just the overarching term for alcoholic liquor made from fermented grain mash. During the bourbon production process, specific types of barrels and distillation and bottling methods are used. Compared to whiskey, bourbon is described as having a sweeter profile. Rye whiskey: Rye whiskey has a spicier, drier taste since it’s made with a minimum 51% rye grain. Rye whiskey can be made anywhere in the country, but similar to bourbon, it must meet certain requirements. Japanese whiskey: Whiskey production in Japan began around the 1870, and has since gained popularity in America. Identifying Japanese whiskey on the shelf is usually pretty easy. When you spot a bottle, you will understand what we mean. Japanese whiskeys are usually lighter and more delicate than other types of whiskey. Turn your taste buds on to spot the subtle fruity notes with some woody finish. You might even notice slight hints of vanilla or honey. If you enjoy scotch, there’s a good chance you’ll also enjoy Japanese whiskey. Try the Suntory Japanese Whiskey or shop Japanese whiskey at Gopuff and get it delivered in minutes.
