Grain whisky

Whisky

Grain whisky ordinarily refers to any whisky made, at least in part, from grains other than malted barley, such as whisky made using maize (corn), wheat or rye. Grain whiskies usually also contain some malted barley to provide enzymes needed for mashing, and are required to include it if produced in Ireland or Scotland. Whisky made from only malted barley is generally called malt whisky rather than grain whisky. Most American and Canadian whiskies are grain whiskies.
