Scotch whisky is malt whisky or grain whisky, made in Scotland. All Scotch whisky was originally made from malted barley. Commercial distilleries began introducing whisky made from wheat and rye in the late 18th century. As of 2018, there were 133 Scotch whisky distilleries operating in Scotland.
The main difference between scotch and whiskey is geography, but also in ingredients. Scotch is a whisky made in Scotland, while whiskey, or bourbon, is a liquor made in the US. Scotch is made from malted barley, while bourbon or whiskey is distilled from corn.
