These trends are discussed to provide more knowledge to those who like good whisky. They talk about the new distilleries in London, featured beverages and processes, new brands, among other things.

The Japanese Whisky is one of the trends that has gained more fame in recent years, positioning itself internationally as a favorite. I think we all remember the Japanese beverage brand Suntory for that commercial that records the protagonist of the “Lost in Translation? film. This brand has become an institution with options like Hakoshu whisky, Yamazaki and Hibiki.

For women there are also options that have been very well received in the market for its fruity and delicious flavor. Mainly, the Scottish malt whisky is one of the favorites of the women for his touch of vanilla and spicy nuances. Additionally, Jameson Irish whisky released their black barrel option, which consists of a whisky barrel burned out twice to reinforce its characteristic charred.

We rarely hear of whisky in India, but this has been successfully known over time with the brand Seven Islands. It is a single malt Scotch whisky that you should not miss if you get the chance to taste it.  Other options are available today, such a single distillation whiskies, grain whisky free to get back to the origins of Irish whiskey, The Scotch Malt Whisky Society and the triple-distilled whisky.

One constant in all of these trends is the quest for the recovery of traditional methods of production, looking to provide unsurpassed quality products.

The Irish Whiskey

Whisky de Irlanda

The Irish whisky is called “whiskey“, just as Americans do with their bourbon. This whiskey is made from barley and is characterized by a triple distillation, a fact that makes it a smoother and delicate drink, compared to others of the same class. This whiskey is the most consumed in this country, Ireland, although in recent years the exportation has grown significantly.

“The word Whisky in Irish Gaelic means “uisge beatha” which translates as “water of life” and it is currently known as Whiskey.”

Elaboration of the Irish Whiskey

The Irish Whiskey has a big difference compared to others whiskeys in its production, mainly. This whiskey is made of the must obtained from some cereals such as wheat, oats, rye, being barley the main or the ingredient most used in the preparation, either malted or not.

Although it suffers some variations in its ingredients in comparison to other whiskeys, the preparation is very similar. First of all, there is a selection of cereal grains to be used and immediately proceed to mix the grain, to go to soaking them in a process called hydration and then they are submitted to their own germination, this process derives in the transformation of starch into insoluble sugar grains.

After these initial processes the grinding of grains takes place, except for the whiskey that is going to be malt, from this it is obtained a kind of pasta, which goes to fermentation for 72 hours. The result of this process is distilled three times and passed to aging or aging in oak barrels. Already in oak barrels tend to spend about 7 years or more. (4 years more of what a Scotch whiskey is aged.).
