Whiskey, or whisky (spelled differently depending on where it's made), is a distilled alcoholic beverage made from fermented grain mash. The grains used in whiskey production can include barley, corn, rye, and wheat. The production process involves mashing the grains, fermenting the mash with yeast, distilling the liquid, and then aging it in wooden barrels, typically oak. Whiskey comes in various types and styles, influenced by factors like the grains used, the distillation process, and aging conditions. Different regions have their own distinct styles, such as Scotch whisky from Scotland, bourbon from the United States, Irish whiskey from Ireland, and so on. The aging process in wooden barrels imparts flavors and characteristics to the whiskey, such as vanilla, caramel, and oak, and it also contributes to its color. Depending on the type and style, whiskey can have a wide range of flavors, from smoky and peaty to sweet and mellow.
