The word whiskey (or whisky in Scotland), is derived from a corruption of the Gaelic ‘uisce beatha’, or ‘uisge beatha’ which translates as ‘water of life’. Irish monks returning from Mediterranean lands are said to have introduced perfume-distillation to Ireland around 1000 AD. This technique was then adapted to produce the first whiskey spirits, with a written Irish record as early as 1405, and Scottish records documenting the process in 1494. Since then, whiskey production has been developed worldwide, though Scotland and Ireland are still regarded as primary producers of authentic whiskeys.
