Single Grain Scotch Whisky is made using a continuous method called the Patent Still process. The majority of cereals used are typically un-malted like wheat, corn, maize and rye together with a small obligatory amount of malted barley. The cereals are cooked together under steam pressure to aid the conversion into soluble starch ready for fermentation and distillation in a Patent or Coffey still.
The production of grain whisky is a more efficient process than that of malt whisky which is a batch process.
Characteristics of grain whisky
Typically grain whisky is light, floral and mild in character resulting in a more neutral flavour than that of malt whisky.
We have used a high proportion of first-fill ex-Bourbon casks to mature Single Grain Strathcolm which has produced flavour characteristics that are rich and admirable.
