Kentuckey whisky, according to
the Louisville Courier-Journal, owes
its excellence to the superiority of the
grain, the quality of the limestone
water, and the slow process of distilla
tion. Rourbon generally contains 70
per cent, corn, and 15 malt, while
rye whisky is made of rye and malt.
The ingredients are stirred into mash
in a huge tub, and then put into fer
menting vessels. Yeast is used to
hasten fermentation except for sour
mash whisky. The process ia not
much unlike beer making. The
liquid is next distilled twice, and
becomes old whisky in about a week
from the start.
