Grain whisky is produced from barley, wheat, rye and corn. The barley constitutes only small part of 10%. Grain whisky production is possible only thanks to the invention of Aeneas Coffey, who in 1831 created an alembic for a continuous production, also known as Patent Still/Coffey Stall. Distillation devices of a new type were cheap and easy to control. Strong alcohol, 94-96%, was produced in them in a very rapid pace, as they did not require cleaning and refilling after each finished distillation. Grain whisky is very rarely bottled as a separate distillate, most often it is used to create blends, which after all constitute 90% of all Scotch Whiskies on the market.
“Individual approach, relaxing atmosphere, interesting anecdotes, many props, integrating games – aroma game and linguistic contest, are the elements which distinguish this tasting against others we had the opportunity to participate in.”
“We warmly encourage to cooperate with Pick and Taste. We are convinced that the tastings of wine, cigars, noble Polish spirits or exclusive bar liquors are at the same high level and are an unforgettable attraction for the participants.”
