Whiskey Add to bar

From the Gaelic word “uisgebaugh” meaning “water of life,” whiskey is made from grain that is ground into grist and then cooked with water to release starches. Malt is added to convert the starch into sugar, and then yeast begins the fermentation process. The low-proof liquid after fermentation is called beer, which after distillation becomes whiskey.
