Maybe they meant rye, which can mean just about anything.In the US, rye whiskey must be at least 51% rye. The rest must be grain, yeast, water, and wood. Nothing else. While those grains could be "just about anything," in practice they are almost always corn, wheat, and/or malted barley.I'm fairly certain that he means that whiskey is not made with maize. What "whisky" is made with does not enter into it.
