Single GrainGrain whisky is distilled in a column still from a variety of cereals like rye, corn or wheat with a touch of malted barley for good measure. It's wood matured and, yes, it's classified as genuine whisky but rarely marketed as most of it gets mixed with single malts to create vast volumes of Blended Scotch Whisky. Today there are seven grain distilleries operating in Scotland. They're large, functional, industrial style buildings with little of the colourful history and romance that attracts throngs of tourists to the charming Single Malt distilleries. Yet taste some of the best Single Grains and we guarantee you'll be more than surprised. Older examples from Cameronbridge, Cambus and Girvan are all worth seeking out.
