In Latin, distilled alcohol was known as ‘aqua vitae’ or ‘water of life’. Back in the day, when this was translated into Gaelic it became ‘uisce beatha’ (Irish) or ‘uisge beatha’ (Scottish); and then further anglicisation eventually led to the word whisky (or whiskey, as it’s referred to in the US and Ireland). Although whiskey distillation was reportedly practised in ancient times by the Mesopotamians and Greeks, the story of whiskey as we know it today kicked off when the process spread to Ireland and Scotland in the 15th century. Today, this strictly regulated spirit is one of the most popular worldwide – thanks in no small part to its variety of styles and flavours.
