I understand that in Scotland, peat is commonly used during the barley-malting process.
I was wondering if anyone might know if there is anywhere in the U.S. or Canada where local peat is used in the barley-malting process. I've tried doing some research online, but have been largely unsuccessful in finding any use of peat in North American whiskeys -- as it certainly looks like this is not a common practice in U.S. or Canadian whiskey production. Any peaty whiskeys I've found produced in N. America just import the pre-malted and peat-smoked barley from Scotland. But if by chance anyone could help direct me to any exceptions where they do use peat in North America, I would be very grateful!
Thanks for your help. This is my first posting so please let me know if I should be more specific or anything.
