Whiskey - it changes name and spelling depending on where it's made and its style, which is why it can feel like the largest overarching family of spirits.
Whiskey is a huge spirit category, and can be divided into different geographical regions. From Scotch, to Irish Whiskeys, to Bourbon Whiskeys, and even stretching as far as Japanese Whiskies - the difference between each spirit essentially comes down to sourcing, mash content, the aging process, and the demographic region.
