Malt Whiskey have to be ALL Malt?

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

   I am going to up front, I did not do a through search.  This may have been asked before.  If one makes a Malt Whiskey, does it necessarily mean it is 100% malt or can it be something like 51% malt and 49% barley?

Cheers,

Hudson.

MALT WHISKY³ Whisky produced at not exceeding 80% alcohol by volume (160 proof) from a fermented mash of not less than 51 percent malted barley and stored at not more than 62.5% alcohol by volume (125 proof) in charred new oak containers

But if you want to use a phrase like "single malt whiskey", then, even though it is not a standard US type, since it would be assumed it has a similar meaning by the consumer as used elsewhere (like Scotland), it would have to be 100% malted barley and from a single distillery.
