Scotch whisky evolved from a Scottish drink called Uisge Beatha, which means “water of life”.

The earliest record of distillation in Scotland occurred as long ago as 1494, as documented in the Exchequer Rolls, which were records of royal income and expenditure.

There are two basic types of Scotch whisky, from which all blends are made:
Single malt Scotch whisky means a Scotch whisky produced from only water and malted barley at a single distillery by batch distillation in pot stills.

Single grain Scotch whisky means a Scotch whisky distilled at a single distillery but, in addition to water and malted barley, may involve whole grains of other malted or unmalted cereals.

Scotland was traditionally divided into four regions: The Highlands, The Lowlands, The Isle of Islay, and Campbeltown.

The Lowlands: The southernmost region of Scotland. Subtle malt character expressing toffee and caramel – a great place to start your whisky adventure. There are five distilleries that remain in operation: Auchentoshan, Bladnoch, Glenkinchie, Annandale and Ailsa Bay from the Girvan Distillery plus three more—Daftmill, Eden Mill, and Kingsbarns—are currently pending their first releases.

Speyside: A pronounced malt profile where the barrel influence shines through giving more body. Speyside gets its name from the River Spey, which cuts through this region and provides water to many of the distilleries. It has the largest number of distilleries, which includes: Aberlour, Balvenie, Cardhu, Cragganmore, Dalwhinnie, Glenfarclas, Glenglassaugh, Glenfiddich, Speyburn, The Macallan, The Glenlivet, and The Glenrothes.

The Highlands: The influence of the amazing water brings herbal notes such as heather and lavender and hints of wild honey. The Highlands is by far the largest region in Scotland both in area and in whisky production. Some Highland distilleries: Aberfeldy, Edradour, Balblair, Ben Nevis, Dalmore, Glen Ord, Glenmorangie, Oban, Glendronach, Old Pulteney, Tullibardine and Tomatin.

The Islands: Each are unique but bring a balance of light peat smoke, heather and honey. An unrecognised sub-region includes all of the whisky-producing islands (but excludes Islay): Arran, Jura, Mull, Orkney, and Skye: with their respective distilleries: Arran, Jura, Tobermory, Highland Park and Scapa, and Talisker.

Campbeltown: Generally lighter malt profile with a subtle coastal influence. A connoisseurs whisky. Once home to over 30 distilleries, currently has only three distilleries operating: Glen Scotia, Glengyle, and Springbank.

Islay: Not for the feint of heart, bold rich malt smoked over a peat fire meets sea salt, brine and iodine, like a howling storm waking up your senses. Islay has eight producing distilleries: Ardbeg, Bowmore, Bruichladdich, Bunnahabhain, Caol Ila, Kilchoman,
