The word “whisky” comes from the phrase "uisge beatha" which means “water of life” in ancient Celtic language .

Whisky is created by the distillation of alcohol obtained from high quality barley along with natural river or spring water and peat (a very special type of coal obtained from plants, only found in Scotland) in copper stills and is finally aged many years ' in white oak barrels '.

Whiskies differ from each other according to the method of production in various regions and the process of aging they are exposed to; and are often classified according to the name of the country of origin .' Scotch whisky , Irish whisky , American whiskey , Canadian whiskey and Japanese whisky are the best-known examples of whisky variations.​​​
