Scotch Whiskey Drinks

Scotch Whisky, Scotch, or simply is the whisky produced exclusively and solely in Scotland; for many it is the best whisky in the world. A whisky to be Scotch, must follow certain rules and standards, issued by the Scotch Whisky Order of 1990 in the United Kingdom, which in turn repeats and the revalidation previous document that bears the same name and riasale in 1988.

This document stipulates the following policies and guidelines of these spirits, that can be called whisky "Scotch":

Scotch whisky must be produced and worked in a Scottish distillery with water and barley malt. In this preparation you can also add other types of cereals, provided that they have been treated in the distillery.

Scotch whisky must be distilled to 94.8° alcohol by volume (in order to preserve the flavor of the ingredients that was produced).
Scotch whisky must be aged in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years.
The non-Scotch whisky should be added no substance apart from water or caramel (dye).
Scotch whisky cannot be bottled with no less than 40° alcohol by volume.

History of Scotch Whisky
It is said that they were Christian monks who brought the distilling in Scotland between the 4th and the 5th century. The first documented record of Scotch whisky production dates to 1494, of the Exchequer Roll, with output of 1500 bottles. In 1506, King James IV of Scotland (1488-1513), visited the town of Dundee, where he was very surprised to learn that the barbers of this city is dedicated to the production of whisky; from this point onward we know with certainty that the Guild of Barber Surgeons of Edinburgh, were responsible for the production of this drink for medicinal purposes.

In the year 1644 is imposed a tax on whisky produced in Scotland so much that, in 1780, there were only 8 legal distilleries and 400 illegal well; but this did not last long since, in the year 1823, Parliament abolished the restrictions on the granting of licences to distilleries, closing nearly all illegal distilleries.

In 1831 Scotch whisky was a real revolution with the introduction of a new distillation process introduced by Aeneas Coffey, which allowed the production of a best whisky and lighter, making it the most famous Scotch whisky and opening spread also to other European countries. As history tells us, Scotch Whisky survived to prohibitions, wars and revolutions, depressions and recessions; but it remains the most representative whiskies in the world, present in over 200 countries.

Whiskey in the News

Whiskey is one of the most talked about, written about, and gossiped about drinks in the world. Between historic auctions, new offerings, and other exciting happenings the whiskey enthusiast has a lot to keep up on. Here are a few eye catching stories.

One of the most interesting things happening in the world of scotch whiskey is the birth of so called 'whiskey liqueurs' like Jack Daniels Honey or Rock and Rye. Birth is a deceptive term because these liqueurs have been around for some time, but only recently have large distilleries tried to market them. Although liqueurs are popular around the world the trend never really took hold here in America. Now distilleries that rely on single malt scotches or bourbon for their bread and butter are trying to create an opening, often by piggy backing off the gourmet food or 'foodie' movement. Will they be a success? This is unclear.

Although mixologists have long relied on whiskey liqueurs and liqueur in general for cocktails many people have trouble imaging Americans drinking liqueurs as an aperitif or digiestif. Fans of scotch whiskey should at least give whiskey liqueur a try. Usually it is a mix of single malt scotch and honey, fruits, or spices. It is by no means whiskey but is also by no means unpleasant.

Have you been seeing more Dalmore whiskey lately? Perhaps you've seen advertisements for it when you go buy whiskey at the liquor store or when browsing to buy scotch online? That's because the historic brewery is undergoing a rebranding of sorts. Years of lagging sales led the company to take on some new investors and use the influx of cash to shake things up. They have new ad campaign, new products, and a re-design of their stag logo. Dalmore has long been a trusted single malt scotch brand so if you haven't tried it yet now may be the time. The company and its new financiers are hoping the rebranding coupled with the distilleries historic clout will boost sales.

In some wackier whiskey related news the world record for most expensive bottle of whiskey ever sold was secured this year. What whiskey took the cake? It was a $94,000 bottle of Glenfiddich Janet Sheed Roberts Reserve. Only 11 have ever been sold! You have to wonder what a $94,000 whiskey tastes like. If that is out of your budget you can always buy one of the many more affordable Glenfiddich single malt scotches.

Irish Whiskey Caramel

An idea occurs to me: Let's prepare sweets for adults today. I suggest a recipe with which delight your guests: salty candies of Irish whiskey. They are jam soft, with enough drink to give a pleasant taste and not more than drinks.

And the distinctive touch, a pinch of salt and vanilla fragrance. Just thinking about it your mouth makes water. Go for them!


1 cup of whipping cream
5 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 teaspoon salt (a little more for dusting at the end)
½ Cup Irish whiskey
½ teaspoon vanilla
1 ½ cups sugar
¼ cup corn syrup
¼ Cup water


He lined a mold of 20 x 20 cm with greased foil and separates. Combine the cream, butter, salt, whiskey, and vanilla.

Mix sugar, corn syrup and water in a heavy saucepan. Boil over medium heat without stirring. When the sugar begins to darken like candy, Dale turns of the pan until it turns amber. Not caramelices too here, because when you cook this mixture together with the cream it will be darker.



4 eggs
8 oz. whiskey
1 tbsp. chocolate syrup
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. coconut extract
1 can condensed milk

Put all in blender and blend well. Store in refrigerator.
