What Spirits Are Made In The UK?

Spirits that were originally made in the UK include gin, in the south of England, but predominantly whiskey. Scottish whisky is famous around the world, and similarly, Irish whiskey is also popular and renowned. There are two different spellings of whisky, based on the translation of Scottish and Irish Gaelic forms.

What Is a Spirit Drink?

A spirit, otherwise called a liquor, refers to a distilled alcoholic drink, that has a higher percentage of alcohol content than other alcohol. There is a higher alcohol content as the drink has been produced from distilled grains or vegetables that have already been through the distillation process. Spirits or liquors are often sweet, bitter and leave a burning sensation in your mouth. For a drink to be a spirit, it needs to have at least 20% alcohol content, with no added sugar.

What Is Vodka?

Originating in Poland, Russia and Sweden, vodka is a distilled spirit made from grains and potatoes. Vodka is drunk all over the world, and it is a popular liquor used in cocktails, shots and
mixed bar drinks across the world. The grain is fermented and distilled, however, does not require ageing like other spirits. It can be drunk straight away and is characterised by its sharp,
clean and natural taste. Vodka is a very popular spirit that is used in cocktails, mixed drinks and shots.
In recent years, flavoured vodka has become incredibly popular, with the most popular flavours including citrus and berry fruits, and vanilla to name a few.

What is Gin?

Gin is a distilled spirit, made from cereal grains and flavoured botanical extracts. Flavoured gin has grown in popularity in recent years, and originated in the Netherlands. The botanicals give gin a herby, botanical taste, with juniper berries a key ingredient to securing this pine flavour. This can be compared to vodka which has a more sharp, clean taste, with little flavour. There are several different types of gin, including a dry gin offering a more botanical flavour, as well as softer, lighter gins offering a sweeter taste. One of the most well-known gin drinks is gin and tonic, prepared with a slice of lime.

What Is Whisky?

Whiskey is a dark distilled spirit, made from a number of grains including barley, corn, wye and wheat. Scotland and Ireland are particularly known for their whisky production, and it is a very popular drink in both countries as well as the US, Canada and Japan. The word comes from the Gaelic word ‘uisge’, and the drink was originally used as medicine both internally and externally
as an anaesthetic and antibiotic.

How Is Whisky Made?

The grains that whiskey is made from goes through fermentation after being mixed with water and yeast. The product of this is then heated that forms a concentrated vapour; by the end of the process, this vapour is a liquid distillate that is clear. This substance is barrelled for a few years, at least, and it is the barrelling process that darkens the flavour. This is because the oak and wood flavours are imparted from the barrels. The bottled whiskey we enjoy is usually at 40% alcohol.
You can find a whiskey Old Fashioned cocktail recipe here.

How Are Spirits Made?

Spirits are made from a fermentation and distilling process, which turns mashed grains such as wheat and barley, and/or potatoes into liquid form.

Types Of Whiskey

There are various types of whisky depending on the type of whisky you’re after. The most popular countries that make their own whisky are Ireland, Scotland, the US and Canada. Irish whiskey can be differentiated from others as it has a far more sweet honey-like taste, as it is kept away from fire and smoke and dried in a kiln. Scottish whisky, meanwhile, has a distinct smoky flavour thanks to the malt drying process. Smoke comes into direct contact with the malt thanks to peat-fueled fire, and this is what defines the scotch whisky.

Difference Between Single Malt Whisky and Blended Malt Scotch Whisky

Single malt whisky is produced at a single distillery, whereas blended whisky features the combined flavours of a number of different flavours. These are mixed by a master blender, who ensured the correct flavours are mixed for a softer taste compared to the harder flavours of single malt whisky.

What’s The Difference Between Liquor and Liqueur

Liquor is a distilled drink, that contains little or no additional sweetness. Liquors also have a high alcohol content, starting at a minimum of 35%, usually. Typical liquors include gin, whisky or vodka. Meanwhile, a liqueur is a sweetened, distilled alcoholic drink with additional flavourings, and is usually added to a spirit for extra flavour. Examples include Grenadine, Aperol or Limoncello.
