What is whiskey?

Whiskey is a type of distilled alcoholic beverage made from fermented grain mash. The grains used in whiskey production can vary and typically include barley, corn, rye, and wheat. The process of making whiskey involves fermenting the grain mash to produce alcohol, which is then distilled to separate the alcohol from the water and other impurities. After distillation, the whiskey is typically aged in wooden barrels, commonly oak, for a specific period. In addition, whiskey is known for its complex flavor profile, which can include notes of caramel, vanilla, spices, oak, and various fruit or grain characteristics. The flavors are influenced by the type of grains used, the distillation process, the aging conditions, and the environment in which the whiskey is matured. Whiskey is often consumed neat without ice or mixers or on the rocks. It is also a key ingredient in numerous classic cocktails like the Old Fashioned, Manhattan, and Whiskey Sour.
