Fun Fact: Today is International Whisk(e)y Day
According to daysoftheyear.com, whiskey has a long and august history, being one of the most recognizable forms of distilled spirit in the world. The name for Whiskey comes from Gaelic, where it used to be called Uisce na Beatha, or “The Water of Life”. It wasn’t long before the name got shortened to Uisce (Merely “Water”) and then the pronunciation slowly changed over time from Ish-Key, to Whiskey. Thus it has remained ever since.
History of International Whisk(e)y Day
The history of International Whiskey day is necessarily intrinsically tied to the history of Whiskey. Whiskey is the result of a distillation process, a chemical/alchemical process known as far back in history as Babylon.
So where did International Whiskey Day come from? Well it was first announced in 2008, and celebrated in 2009 at the Whiskey Festival in the Northern Netherlands. This was all done in honor of Michael Jackson. No, not the King of Pop, but a man well known for his writings on Whiskey. The purpose isn’t just the raising of awareness of whiskey and its charms, but also to spread awareness for Parkinson’s, a disease that Michael suffered from in his later years.
