Starting with the repeal of the Corn Laws in 1846, American ‘Indian’ Corn crossed the Atlantic and was used as part of the un-malted grain bill in UK pot and patent still whiskeys. In 1908 a Royal Commission on the materials and process permitted in Irish and Scottish whiskey was convened. This commission allowed corn to remain in the lighter flavored patent still whiskeys but despite over 50 years of production deemed malt and corn Pot Still Whiskey too American in flavor (and too dangerous: potentially threatening their future sales by opening up their customer's palette to the flavor of corn based whiskeys, one step away from bourbon), and the practice stopped.
All Points West Distillery revives this orphan trans-Atlantic whiskey style with ALL POINTS WEST MALT AND GRAIN POT STILL WHISKEY
With 35,000 Acres of protected watershed in the Appalachian foothills, Newark New Jersey had by 1920, 26 operational breweries.

Today none of these breweries remain.
