Liquor Guide

Gin
…is a spirit whose predominant flavor is derived from juniper berries (Juniperus communis). Although several different styles of gin have existed since its origins, it is broadly differentiated into two basic legal categories. Distilled gin is crafted in the traditional manner, by redistilling neutral spirits of agricultural origin with juniper berries and other botanicals. Compound gin is made by simply flavoring neutral spirit with essences and/or other ‘natural flavorings’ without redistillation, and is not as highly regarded. The minimum bottled alcoholic strength for gin is 37.5% ABV in the E.U., and 40% ABV in the U.S.

Vodka
…is a distilled beverage and one of the world’s most popular liquors. It is composed primarily of water and ethanol with traces of impurities and flavorings. Vodka is made from fermented substances like grain.  Today, the standard Polish, Russian and Lithuanian vodkas are 40% abv (80 proof), although many non-export Russian brands are sold at 38%.

Whiskey
…is a type of distilled alcoholic beverage made from fermented grain mash. Different grains are used for different varieties, including barley, malted barley, rye, malted rye, wheat, and maize (corn). Whiskey is aged in wooden casks, made generally of white oak, except that in the United States, corn whiskey need not be aged.

 

Scotch Whiskey

…is whiskey made in Scotland. In Britain, the term whiskey is usually taken to mean Scotch unless otherwise specified. In other English-speaking countries, it is often referred to simply as “Scotch”.  Scotch whiskey is divided into five distinct categories: Single Malt Scotch Whiskey, Single Grain Scotch Whiskey, Blended Malt Scotch Whiskey (formerly called “vatted malt” or “pure malt”), Blended Grain Scotch Whiskey, and Blended Scotch Whiskey.  All Scotch whiskey must be aged in oak barrels for at least three years. Any age statement written on a bottle of Scotch whiskey, in the form of a number, must reflect the age of the youngest whiskey used to produce that product. A whiskey with an age statement is known as guaranteed age whiskey.

 

Bourbon Whiskey

…is a type of American whiskey – a barrel-aged distilled spirit made primarily from corn. The name of the spirit derives from its historical association with an area known as Old Bourbon, around what is now Bourbon County, Kentucky (which, in turn, was named after the French House of Bourbon royal family). It has been produced since the 18th century. While it may be made anywhere in the United States, it is strongly associated with Kentucky.

Brandy
…is a spirit produced by distilling wine. Brandy generally contains 35%–60% alcohol by volume and is typically taken as an after-dinner drink. Some brandies are aged in wooden casks, while some are simply colored with caramel coloring to imitate the effect of such aging (and some brandies are produced using a combination of both aging and coloring).  Brandy is also produced from fermented fruits other than grapes, but these products are typically called Eaux-de-vie.

Tequila
…is a spirit made from the blue agave plant, primarily in the area surrounding the city of Tequila, 40 miles northwest of Guadalajara, and in the highlands (Los Altos) of the western Mexican state of Jalisco.  The red volcanic soil in the surrounding region is particularly well-suited to the growing of the blue agave, and more than 300 million of the plants are harvested there each year. Agave tequila grows differently depending on the region. Blue agaves grown in the Highlands region are larger in size and sweeter in aroma and taste. Agaves harvested in the Lowlands, on the other hand, have a more herbaceous fragrance and flavor.
