The home of malt
Scotland is the home of whisky and the leading producer of single malt in the world, with over 80 distilleries currently in operation. Whisky is not just an industry or the national drink of Scotland, but forms a major part of the country's history and heritage. The distilleries are spread far and wide and the country is split in to six major whisky producing regions - Speyside, Highlands, Lowlands, Campbeltown, the islands and Islay − with each region having its own general style.
