First things first, is it whisky or whiskey? Well, It really depends on where the product is made. The mnemonic is – use whiskey with an 'e' if the country it is coming from has an 'e' in its spelling, for example, Ireland uses the 'e,' which was carried over to American whiskeys. Scotland doesn't use the 'e,' same as Japan, and Canada.
Now, let's not boggle your mind with that and let's get to the liquid gold. Whisky was once thought of as something only older moneyed men drink, but, sorry dad, we're now adding up whisky on our top-shelf and even discovering new brands in the market aside from the usual whisky bottles that start with glens and J's. Today there's a growing younger market for whisky as the millennials have started to shift their tastes.
