Production regions

In principle we distinguish 6 regions where whisky is produced: Lowlands, Highlands, Islay, Campbeltown and Speyside, as well as islands: Jura, Mull and Skye in the west and Orkneye in the north.English legislators did the separation of two main regions that is Higlands from Lowlands, in 1784 in Wash Act, by setting Highlands Boundary Line, which corresponded to the lay of the land.
