The main difference between grain whisky and single malt whisky is, grain whisky is made from a mash that always includes some malted barley and unmalted cereals like maize and wheat, whereas single malt is made from malted barley only. Also grain whisky is produced in continuous or column stills, which allow for a higher quantity to be produced than pot stills which are used in the production of single malt. However, that said, there are still a number of absolutely beautiful whiskies made from grain. Currently there are seven operating Grain distilleries most of which are located in the Lowland region of Scotland.
