Whiskey or whisky tasting sessions continue to be a hot ticket in 2023. Although you might not know which spelling you should be using for ‘the water of life’. The confusion is understandable, because ultimately, both spellings are right! It just depends where you are, and what type of whisk(e)y you’re referring to.
“Have you ever heard the traditional folk song “Whiskey in the Jar”? Or is that “Whisky in the Jar”?” asks Encylopaedia Britannica’s Amy McKenna. “It is generally spelled “whiskey”—with an e—in the United States and Ireland. It is spelled “whisky”—without the e—in Scotland and Canada, which are both well known for their whisk(e)y, and in several other countries.” she concluded.
So, you’ll know any references to International Whisk(e)y Day, (which falls on 27th March annually), aren’t mad typos.
And now that’s cleared up, let’s take a closer look at the enduring appeal of whisky tasting sessions across the generations.
