How Scotch Whisky is Made08:44 AM Tuesday April 11, 2017 |

The making of a Scotch Whisky starts with a single malt barley.
The production steps are drying, grinding into a powder, adding Scotland’s unique soft water, fermentation, distillation, maturation and finally, bottling depending on the number of years you want it to age. Whisky is aged for a minimum of three years before it’s bottled.

The original collection of this Scotch Whisky bottles was once owned by a rich businessman from San Paolo, Brazil. It was bought by the company that currently operates this whole facility offering whisky tasting, sales, sampling. They keep adding to this collection but they only collect Scottish made liquor.

The highland cattle is different from our cow, Harry. The Scottish cow is fluffy. They have longer horns and curly coats, their natural cover for winter.
