Scotch Whisky, Whiskey, or Bourbon?First of all, a little clarification. All whiskies are made with some type of fermented grain mash. There are slight differences to the recipes of each, but a big factor in what they are called is the location of where it is made.
Here in the United States, we have whiskey and bourbon. Generally, whiskey (with an -ey on the end) is from Tennessee, and Bourbon must be made in Kentucky. Irish whiskey must be from... you guessed it- Ireland.
Scotch whisky (no "e" in the name) can only be titled scotch if it is made in Scotland. The main ingredient is malted barley, and it must be aged in an oak cask for at least 3 years. The longer it sits in there, the finer the scotch.
What'll You Have?The people that order scotch regularly usually drink it straight, on the rocks, or with a little water added. If you would like to try this incredible libation in a mixed drink, have one of these:
Basically, it's a classic Manhattan, but made with Scotch whisky instead of rye or Tennessee whiskey. We add sweet vermouth and bitters, then garnish it with a lemon or orange twist.
We've taken the classic Moscow Mule and switched out the vodka for our delicious Monkey Shoulder Blended Malt Scotch. That, combined with ginger beer and lime in a copper mug, will have you wanting a refill!
You will find a good variety of the best scotches behind our bar. Among these are:
- Johnnie Walker - Black & Red
