Where does it come from? Is it whisky or whiskey?
Credited for being the first whisky distillers, the word whisky comes from the Irish phrase “uisce beatha” meaning “water of life.”
There are two basic kinds of Scotch whisky: malt and grain. The other distinction in Scotch is blended whiskies or single malt whiskies.
Historically, there have been two main categories of American whiskey: bourbon and rye.
