Vatted Grain A term rarely found these days. Whisky produced by mixing together two or more grain whiskies (usually up to a maximum of six) from two or more different distilleries. The vatting of a mixture of grain whiskies from the same distillery but at different ages is more usually called single grain. Any age statement refers to the youngest component whisky. See also "Single Grain" and "Blended Whisky".
Vatted Malt Whisky produced by mixing together two or more malt whiskies (usually up to a maximum of six) from two or more different distilleries. Originally the term applied as well to a mixture of malt whiskies from the same distillery but at different ages but this is more usually called single malt. Any age statement refers to the youngest component whisky. See also "Single Cask", "Single Malt", "Pure Malt" and "Blended Whisky".
Vatting The mixing together of whiskies. Vatting is usually taken as meaning that only malt or only grain whiskies are contained in the mixture. If both types of whiskies were to be included, the process would be blending.
