    It is made by the distillation of fermented barley, so basically, whisky is made from beer, [although unlike beer it has no hops], just as brandy is made from wine..

    You've got that totally wrong friend wine contains alcohol because yeast fed upon the sugar that was already in the wine or the sugar that was added to the wine so that more alcohol can be produced and then the yeast secretes its waste product which is alcohol.

    That's how it works. As for whiskey they take wine or mash and they distill the alcohol from the wine and the mash the concentrated alcohol product becomes some kind of a liquor or a spirit based upon what mash or wine or potato or rice happened to be used in order to convert the sugar in that product into alcohol.

    All ethyl alcohols result from fermentation of sugars by yeast.  For wines, it's the sugar in the grapes that ferments by the yeast.  For beers and ales, the yeast does the sugars from the various grains.  And for the hard liquors, the grains like corn or barley provide the sugar for fermenting Scotch.
