Whisky is made from fermented grain mash and a variety of grains, and aged in wooden casks. It has been a firm favourite tipple in many pubs, restaurants, hotels and homes over the centuries. Now, thanks to the introduction of biomass boilers, some of the distilleries have also become more sustainable and energy-efficient. Therefore, this is great for protecting the beautiful surrounding natural environment.
