Any iStill can make any product. Whisky, vodka, rum, brandy, or gin … you name it, the iStill can make it. But that’s just the production side of things. Sometimes additional rules or laws apply. Scottish single malt is an example. Additional rules are set in place.
In this iStill Blog post I will explore what those additional rules are and how iStill helps customers – with its advanced technology – at making amazing Scottish single malt whisky. Yes! iStill made Scottish single malt whisky according to the rules of the Scottish Whisky Association.
Scottish single malt whisky
Scottish single malt whisky is a full bodied, three dimensional spirit, produced by batch distillation. But there are more rules applicable. For instance: it has to be made in Scotland, but there is more, so let’s dive in deeper.
Scottish single malt whisky needs to be distilled in a potstill. Otherwise it cannot be called Scottish single malt whisky. Not just any potstill though! The potstill needs a lyne arm and at least all the gases need to touch copper only. In practice, this means that the top of the boiler, the riser and the lyne arm need to be all copper. The boiler and product cooler can me made out of other materials as well.
