Irish Whiskey

The word "whiskey" is an Anglicisation of "uisce beatha/uisge beatha" a phrase from the Goidelic branch of languages (Irish, Scottish Gaelic and Manx) meaning "water of life".

Most Irish pot still whiskey is distilled three times, while Scotch whisky is usually distilled twice. Peat is rarely used in the malting process, so that Irish Whiskey has a smoother finish as opposed to the smoky, earthy overtones common to some Scotches. Although Scotland sustains approximately 90 distilleries, Ireland has only four.

For a whiskey to be considered "Irish Whiskey", it must be distilled and aged in the Republic of Ireland or Northern Ireland for at least 3 years in wooden casks, and must derive its flavor from the yeast-fermented mash of cereal grains used in it's production.
