Happy World Whisky Day! After our blog post about cocktails last week, we wanted to take the opportunity to celebrate World Whisky Day. Whisky, also known as whiskey in some places like Ireland and the USA, is a distilled alcoholic beverage that has been enjoyed for centuries. It is made from fermented grains which are then aged in wooden casks, whisky is known for its rich, complex flavours and aromas. These flavours often come from the wooden casks the whisky is stored in.
The spirit has a rich history that dates back hundreds of years. Its origins can be traced back to the Celtic people of Scotland and Ireland, who used to make a form of whisky known as uisge beatha, meaning “water of life”. It was believed to have medicinal properties and was often used as a remedy for various illnesses.
In modern times, whisky is enjoyed on all occasions occasions. A whisky hamper is a great way to show your appreciation for your loved ones, or to reward your employees for their hard work.
Did you know?: The vast majority of whisky exported from Scotland is blended, not single malt.
