  1. One of you stated that the product of a distilled grain mashbill is “whiskey”; so, why isn’t the clear distillate made from a rye mashbill considered whiskey? Most folks would call it vodka.

  2. Hey guys, It might be different somewhere else, but the minimum alcohol for Bourbon (and most other spirits) in Australia is 74 proof or 37%ABV as we call it. Scotch still has the 40% minimum though.
