History of whiskey

WHISKEY - Once referred to as "the water of life", the alcoholic drink is now one of the most complex alcoholic specialties worldwide. Whiskey serves two completely opposing images: on the one hand as a widely used national drink, on the other hand as a stylish luxury item that every now and then delights the palate as a fine drop with its variety of flavors. Who invented whiskey - Scots or Irish - has not yet been conclusively clarified. What is certain is that it was Christian monks who came to the Celtic country in the 5th century and brought the art of distillation with them. The clear distillate was called "aqua vitae" (water of life) for many years and served medicinal purposes.

origin

The Celtic term for whiskey was "uisghe beatha". And because the English found it difficult to pronounce Gaelic, "uisghe" gradually became the term whiskey. In the last few years in particular, whiskey has once again increased in popularity. Scotland is known worldwide as a stronghold of whiskey production with an enormous selection of blended malt scotch and single malt scotch whiskey. Malt whiskey consists of 100% malted barley (malt English for malt) and is considered particularly stylish. The taste palette of the different whiskey regions ranges from slightly fruity nuances to strongly peaty and smoky characters. Compared to whiskey from Scotland, Irish whiskey is famous for having a slightly oily and smooth body.

Whiskey vs. whiskey

The whiskey from Ireland differs only slightly in the manufacturing process from the Scottish whiskey and the differentiated spelling with "e". Scottish whiskey has experienced a real boom in the USA since immigrants from Scotland and Ireland immigrated in the 18th century. The beginning of whiskey turned out to be problematic because barley (the main component of whiskey) was difficult to grow. In the search for a suitable alternative, the focus was on rye and corn, which still make up the majority of American whiskeys today. Lovers will find a variety of bourbon whiskey (Jim Beam, Wild Turkey), Tennessee whiskey (Jack Daniels), rye whiskey (Rittenhouse) and corn whiskeys. The diversity of the art of whiskey distilling has expanded over the years - the most famous whiskeys are:

Canadian whiskey (Canadian Club) and Japanese whiskey (with 5 distilleries including Yamazaki and Nikka). Whiskey is also widely produced in Europe, South Asia, Australia and New Zealand.
