Single malt whisky is produced and bottled in a single distillery, whereas blended whisky is a blend of two or more malt or grain whiskies.

There are more than 100 distilleries all over Scotland producing a variety of distinctive flavours, depending on the location of the distillery. From the clean, fresh taste of the Lowland Glenkinchie to the smoky, peaty Islay malts such as Laphroaig, there is a whisky to suit every palate.
