Whiskies

 

Although the luxury whisky scene has been mainly dominated by Scotch, there are now many countries producing exceptional whiskies influenced by their own history and culture. The Bourbon industry in the US and the Irish whiskey industry have both seen tremendous growth over the last decade and this trend is set to continue with further investment into the craft spirits industry. The rise in prohibition era cocktails has boosted the whiskey industry and brought many historical drinks back into fashion.

American

It is perhaps the USA that has the widest selection of whiskey styles available on the market, the two most famous being Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey. Bourbon can be made anywhere in the USA and must contain a mash bill of at least 51% corn, it must be aged in charred new oak casks and straight bourbon must age for at least 2 years. Tennessee Whiskey must meet the requirements for straight bourbon PLUS be made in Tennessee and be charcoal filtered before bottling (Lincoln County Process). Other styles of American Whiskey include Rye which must contain at least 51% Rye in the mash bill, and Single malt whiskey which is becoming more and more popular in the USA. It is made using a similar recipe to Scotch with malted barley as the primary grain.

Canadian

When the ban on alcohol was lifted in 1933 American tastes for whisky had shifted. Less was the demand for spicy American Rye, and instead drinkers craved the easy going smoothness and light bodied boot-legged Canadian whisky. Canadian whisky is distilled in Canada and is typically made by blending a high proof grain whiskey with a lower proof corn whisky for sweetness and a rye-grain based whisky for extra flavor. Similarly to Scotch, Canadian whisky must be aged for at least 3 years and be bottled at no less than 40% ABV. There are typically no restrictions on the type of casks that must be used for Canadian whisky unlike Bourbon which must use charred fresh new oak casks.

Irish

History suggests that Ireland may have been distilling ‘usquebaugh’ longer than the Scots with the first recorded mention of whiskey back in 1405. Irish whiskey was once the most popular style of whiskey in the world, however American prohibition and the Irish civil war forced many distillers out of business. This allowed Scotch whisky to dominate and saturate the global market. Times are changing though and the demand for Irish whiskey has increased 200% in the last decade. Irish whiskey must be made in Ireland from a mash of cereals typically containing a mix of malted and un-malted barley. Typically most Irish whiskey is distilled three times and is un-peated, however exceptions do exist such as Connemara peated single malt whiskey. Irish whiskey is known for its exceptional smoothness and easy going nature; it is not hard to see why Jameson’s is one of the bestselling whiskies in the world.
