Types of Irish whiskey include grain whiskey, blended Irish whiskey and single pot still whiskey. Grain whiskey is distilled from unmalted grains and column stills to achieve a lighter taste. An example of this type of whiskey is Greenore.
Blended Irish whiskey is typically a mix of malt and grain whiskey. The taste and quality of this type of whiskey improve with higher malt ratios. An example of a blended whiskey is Bushmills original. Single pot still whiskey is made with malted and unmalted barley and requires a pot still for distillation. Green Spot is an example of a single pot still whiskey.
