A Primer on Single Malt Scotch

On Whisky

The word "whisky" itself comes from the Celtic uisgebaugh (the Caledonian spelling) or uisgebeatha (the Hibernian spelling), and means "water of life."

The English found the Celtic word too difficult and too long, so they shortened and anglicized it to "whisky." The Scots and Canadians spell it whisky, while the Irish and Americans spell it whiskey.
