Broadly speaking, whiskey is an alcoholic beverage that is obtained by the distillation of fermented malt (any germinated grain, mainly barley or rye, which has subsequently dried) which is acquired from a process called “malting.” The first legal record of this distillate dates back to the 17th century, although there are even older references in Celtic culture writings.
The types of whisky or “whiskey” (as it is called in the United States, Ireland and Mexico) are defined according to the grain used, the production process, the place where it was made, the time it was aged and type of barrel
