For Scotch to be called Scotch it must come from Scotland, it must be bottled at a strength of at least 40% alcohol by volume, and it must be aged in oak barrels for a minimum of three years. In addition, Scotch must be processed with mash, and converted in a distillery into fermentable substrate by enzyme systems that can be distilled at an alcoholic strength by volume of less than 94.8%. It also needs to be labeled in Scotland.
Due to all of these requirements, Scotch is always in high demand. Once in its bottle, it does not continue to age. Many distilleries produce younger Scotch, which meets the three-year-old requirement, due to supply and demand. This is one of the things that makes a top-quality Scotch more impressive. These are not drinks that people order to just take a shot of at a bar. This is also not a drink that is to be used with a mixer.

It is distilled in a unique selection of oak cask styles, which are combined to yield a limited-edition expression each year.
