Whiskey is a type of distilled alcoholic beverage made from fermented grain mash. Various grains (which may be malted) are used for different varieties, including barley, corn, rye, and wheat. Whiskey is typically aged in wooden casks, generally made of charred white oak.

Whiskey is a strictly regulated spirit worldwide with many classes and types. The typical unifying characteristics of the different classes and types are the fermentation of grains, distillation, and aging in wooden barrels.
The “e” or lack thereof in the word’s spelling is purely orthographical. Certain countries favor one spelling over the other - Scotland and Canada always use “whisky,” while Ireland and the United States tend to favor “whiskey.”
Whiskey are typically 40 percent ABV or 80 proof. Some high-proof liquors—primarily whiskeys and rums—reach over 50 percent ABV (100 proof)
