Whiskey is a distilled alcoholic beverage which is prepared from the fermented grain mash of corn, rye, wheat and barley.

Some of the most common steps required for preparing good quality whiskey include mashing, fermenting, blending and bottling. Moderate consumption of this beverage is associated with improving the metabolism, preventing stroke, enhancing heart functions, increasing the level of good cholesterol and fighting against cancer cells. Some of the most common types include Irish, Scotch, American, grain and blended whiskeys.

Innovations in the manufacturing of alcoholic drinks and proliferation of online retail stores providing ease of access, hassle-free shopping experience, along with premium brands and a wide variety to choose from, are also creating a positive outlook for the market. Some of the other major factors contributing to the market growth include constant product innovations, the growing popularity of whiskey-based tourism and extensive promotional activities conducted by manufacturers.
