Process

Single Grain is a blend of various grains made at one distillery, not one grain. ‘Single’refers to the unique distillery the spirit is made at, while ‘Grain’ refers to the mixture of grains in the mash besides barley.

Ingredients

Single Grain Whisky is made from Wheat, Oats, Corn, or Rye.

Often added for finesse in Blended Scotch, Grain Whisky is the perfect mash of Wheat, Oats, Corn or Rye in addition to malted barley. As a matter of fact, Grain Whisky is cheaper to produce than Single Malt.

The process to make Single Grain Whisky is called Continuous Column Still distillation, an artisanal process perfected from the 19thcentury. Grain Whisky is made in columns to create a light yet strong spirit of 40%- 55% ABV.
