Single Malt Scotch Whisky Suppliers:
At the present time, blended Scotch whiskies contain up to 40 single malts from different distilleries around Scotland. Blended with lighter grain whiskies. Furthermore, Blended Scotch whisky suppliers account for 90% of the Scotch whisky consumed in the world. Due to it being the preferred taste of Scotch whisky for most consumers.
Notably; Scotland is divided into four areas: The Highlands, Lowland, Islay, and Campbeltown. Wholesale Scotch whisky suppliers congregated in these main regions.
However; Speyside, which was once part of the Highlands, covers the Spey river valley in the north -east of Scotland. It particularly has nearly half of the total number of Scotch whiskey distilleries in Scotland within its geographic boundaries.
Generally the Scotch whisky industry uses 3 kinds of oak casks, which are classified by capacity:
Scotch Whisky Oak Casks;
“Barrel” : 190 litres
“Hogshead” : 250 litres
“Butt” : 500 litres
Notwithstanding that, the advantage of using oak for maturing alcohol is that it is not air-tight. Evaporation can affect water contained in the cask. It also affects the alcohol itself. Resulting in a diminution of the alcohol percentage. To bear the name of ‘Scotch whisky’, a grain spirit must be aged at least for 3 years in an oak cask.
