Whiskey comes in many forms. Perhaps the most famous of them all is Scotch. Even there, you can subcategorize into blended and single malt. There is also Irish whiskey, bourbon, and rye. Let’s talk about the major types of whiskey, all of which you can purchase from our Nassau County liquor store.
When it comes to Scotch, it is defined as whiskey- or whisky as is sometimes the popular and equally acceptable spelling- that is made in Scotland. It has to be aged in oak barrels for at least three years. But what do we care about that? What matters is the taste. And for Scotch drinkers, there is nothing else. When you come to our Nassau County liquor store, choose from among an impressive variety of Scotch brands, in both blended and single malt, young or aged.
Irish whiskey, not surprisingly must be made in Ireland. It is not unheard of for an energetic argument to occur over which brand of Irish whiskey represents a particular part of Ireland or a particular religious group. Our Nassau County liquor store does not engage in such debates. We have Irish whiskey of various brands and styles.
Bourbon is a style of whiskey that is distinctly American. Bourbon is enjoyed all over our great nation, but it originated in Kentucky. More than other types of whiskey, bourbon is a main ingredient in many well known cocktails: The Old Fashioned, favored by Don Draper on Mad Men, the whiskey sour, and mint julep all feature bourbon. Rye whiskey can be either American or Canadian. Our Nassau County liquor store is proud to offer both.
Whether you like your whiskey straight or mixed, from across the ocean, down South, or from our Northern neighbors, just come on in to our Nassau County liquor store. We can help you make a perfect choice.
