Yesterday I told you about how U.S. law can magically turn vodka into whiskey.
Today I'm here to tell you about another peculiarity in the law. To be called whiskey a spirit must be distilled from grain and stored in oak containers, but the law doesn't say how long it has to be stored.
Now let's say you want to make an un-aged grain spirit called "white whiskey." Can you?
I'll let Kevin Erskine of The Scotch Blog explain the rest of it to you in this excellent post.
