Whiskey 101

Ok let’s start with the basics.  Before tracking down the best whiskey spots in Pittsburgh, it’s probably a good idea to have a decent understanding of what whiskey is.  For those of you who have already grasped this topic, do proceed…for the fellow whiskey-virgins, let us take a brief moment to educate ourselves.

According to our good friends (joke) over at Men’s JournalWhiskey is a liquor primarily made from distilled grains such as rye, corn, or barley, then aged in wooden barrels. One of the most well-known whiskeys is Bourbon. This spirit is made from 51% corn, stored in a new-charred oak barrel, and must be distilled at no more than 160 proof. Major high-maintenance. The important thing to remember is that all Bourbon is whiskey but not all whiskey is Bourbon. Congrats! Whiskey 101 is complete and now we can move on to the fun stuff. See below for best whiskey spots in Pittsburgh!
