BOURBON AND NORTH AMERICAN WHISKEY

USA whiskey is distilled from a fermented mash of cereal grain of which six major types of grain stand out. The individual mash must contain at least fifty one per cent of their named cereal grains. As well as the six major types of grain whiskey there are also three other styles permitted: Blended Whiskey, Grain Whiskey and Spirit Whiskey.

RYE WHISKEY……..made from mash that consists of a minimum of fifty one percent rye.

RYE MALT WHISKEY………made from mash that consists of a minimum of fifty one percent malted rye.

MALT WHISKEY…………made from mash that consists of a minimum of fifty one percent malted barley.

WHEAT WHISKEY………..made from mash that consists of a minimum of fifty one percent wheat.,/p>

BOURBON WHISKEY……….made from mash that consists of a minimum of fifty one percent maize corn.

CORN WHISKEY………….made from mash that consists of a minimum of eighty percent corn.

BLENDED WHISKEY……..is a blend which can utilise any of the above six straight whiskies. The blend may highlight on its label a dominant grain providing it contains over fifty one percent of that grain type.

GRAIN WHISKEY……….can be produced from any of the cereal grain with no minimum percentage.

SPIRIT WHISKEY………..is made from a variety of neutral spirits and a minimum of five percent of a controlled whiskey e.g. single grain.

The other and equally popular North American whisky with its own regulations and style is Canadian Whisky. The range and quantity produced and thus available in the UK is considerably less than that exported by its close neighbour. Most Canadian whiskies are blended from a variety of grain spirits, with a large percentage being corn. Most Canadian Whiskies have a reputation for being smooth, light and deliciously fruity on the tongue, although Canada does produce more robust and fuller flavour whiskies especially where the blend contains a good proportion rye grain.

Alexander Hadleigh Wine Merchants, Southampton, Hampshire, UK do offer a full and varied selection of Bourbon and North American whiskies, including Canadian. Our fine list of American Whiskies will match and suit most budgets and are available online or from our Southampton Wine Shop.
