International Whisk(e)y Day

International Whisk(e)y Day

Whiskey is a well-known spirit that has a long history. The name was soon shortened to Uisce (“Merely Water”), and the pronunciation gradually changed from Ish Key to Whiskey. That pronunciation has remained unchanged since then. Now it’s time for everyone to celebrate International Whiskey Day! Whiskey is the product of a distillation process. This chemical/alchemical process has been around as long as Babylon. Although no one knows for sure if they made whiskey as good as it is today, historians know that whiskey was possible. A’mash’ is a mixture consisting of water and grain that is heated slowly to convert starch into sugars. What kind of grain the maker uses will affect the final product. This is known as wort. It is also the beginning of the amazing whiskey’s life-cycle. The aging process can be tedious, but it is well worth the effort. Here’s a quick overview of the various types of grains that make these different whiskey beverages. It was first celebrated in 2008 and then again in 2009 at the Whiskey festival in the Northern Netherlands. This was in memory of Michael Jackson, a whiskey (and beer!) connoisseur and writer. (No, it’s not the King of Pop. He was a well-known man for his writings about Whiskey. He was also diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease. His whiskey-loving friends wanted him to celebrate his love of whiskey and help find a cure. The date was chosen because Michael’s birthday is March 27. It is also intended to raise awareness for Parkinson’s disease, which Michael Jackon, a whiskey enthusiast, was diagnosed with in his later years. These are some ideas to celebrate Whisk(ey Day. These are some examples:
