About the Event
Whisky is made from only three ingredients: Barley, water and yeast.
The imagery of Whisky is being built around the idea of provenance, as much as 80% of the flavours actually comes from maturation, and the rest from distillation and fermentation.
What about the barley?
Digging deeper into the scene, you will find that they barley varieties are selected for their alcoholic yield, instead of flavours. Furthermore, there are only a handful of distilleries that does malting on their own, where the rest is all being done in colossal central maltings, providing the barley for the majority of scotch distilleries.
Join us to explore the possibility of small scale production, and distilleries who showcases their uniqueness in farming practices that shines through in the drams.
