Do non-barley malt whiskies exist?


Recommended Posts

I doubt it.  You need barley in there for the diastatic enzymes it brings in abundance.  I think the efficiency of hoping each all-wheat or all-corn mash will fully convert and then doping the failures with amylase would be economically unviable.

Out of sheer curiosity i would like to know whether malted whisky exist that re made from wheat wholly or maybe a mix of malted grain ?

If there are please list the brand or distillery that does them

Have a look at definitions of malt whiskey and single malt - sounds like malted barley is a given.
