As well as Scotch and Irish whiskeys, other varieties include bourbon, rye and blended. Bourbon is made from at least 51% corn mash, aged in new oak barrels. It is only produced in the United States. Rye is another whiskey made in America, composed of 51% rye. Blended whiskey is usually made from a mix of various aged whiskeys, first created as a way to combat demand for whiskey.
Today, whiskey is produced in many countries around the world. Scotland and Ireland remain the most popular whiskey distillers, but Canada and the United States also have reputable brands. New Zealand and Japan are now rising within this market too, due to the growing trend for whiskey in these countries.
