Whisky is an alcoholic beverage made by distilling fermented malt from different cereals such as barley, wheat or rye, which age in oak barrels. The elaboration process consists of mixing water with the cereal and then proceeding to its fermentation and aging. For the highest quality whiskeys, water from springs is used, adding great purity to the drink.
First, the barley is malted and transferred to high capacity drums where it germinates and in this process the cereal turns into sugar and the barley dries in ovens through peat smoke. The malt is dried and ground to mix with the hot water in a tank, where the yeasts are added so fermentation is possible, then proceed to a double distillation, At first you get a drink with an alcohol content of 25-30º, in a second term a drink of 60-70º. Finally the whisky ages in wooden barrels.
You can differentiate 3 types of different whisky:
