What Is Whiskey?

Fifth State Whiskey - Fairfield County's Whiskey

A quick intro to the world of whiskey...

- All are made from a grain (typically barley, corn, wheat, and rye)

- Distilled to below 80% ABV (other countries allow higher, but not in America)

- Typically aged in oak barrels (used American barrels are often reused in other countries like Scotland and Ireland for aging their whiskey)


- Different processes and requirements in various different countries

- Bottled at or above 40% ABV

Below are links to the legal definitions of some of the most common types:
