Blended Whisky brings together a number of whiskies from different distilleries. NZ, Japan, Ireland and Canada all produce blends, but the most famous by far, come from Scotland in the form of Blended Scotch Whisky. Technically, the term denotes a blend of one or more Single Malt Scotch Whiskies with one or more Single Grain Scotch Whiskies from different distilleries. Back in the old days, the original family-run distilleries usually didn’t have bottling facilities. So they would sell whole casks of their whisky to bottlers, blenders and merchants who then combined these components from various distilleries, to craft their own consistent "house or brand style".
