Known as “the water of life”, whiskey is a powerful and popular spirit There are many types and categories that the drink falls into. Whatever type of whiskey it is when it comes to alcohol storage you have to look at using a bonded warehouse to store it all first. Bonded Warehouse Management Software, like that from Gaina Software helps to make sure that the stock is preserved in the best conditions until it is ready to sell.
There are many types of whiskey. Here are the main ones.
- Single Malt – This is one of the classifications of a Scottish Whiskey. This is, as the name suggests, a non blended straight whiskey made with malted barley and wheat grains. It is generally drunk neat or with a splash of spring water or ice.
- Blended Whiskey – This is a popular drink as it is smoother and not as harsh as the single malt can be. It’s able to be mixed and lends itself better to the mixers that are on the market today.
- Irish Whiskey – Another single malt but because it uses a different “mash process” it comes out smoother.
- Bourbon Whiskey – This is an invention from North America. It primarily uses corn as its main ingredient and this produces a much sweeter whiskey. It’s a very popular mixer spirit with ginger ale, lime and soda or lemonade being added to it. It can happily be consumed neat as well earning it the nickname of “the suppin’ whiskey”.
