WHISKEY

In the U.S., England, and Ireland, you drink whiskey, but if you’re in Scotland, Canada, or Japan, it’s whisky. However you spell it, it’s the “water of life” or “uisge beatha” in the Gaelic tongue.
 
“The light music of whiskey falling into a glass — an agreeable interlude.
James Joyce

IRISH WHISKEY
Who made the world’s first whiskey, the Irish or the Scots? That’s a lively argument that will never be resolved, so it’s best to toast both great homelands with your favorite whiskey or whisky. The Irish make single malts, as well as excellent blends of malted and unmalted barley. Often, mellowing neutral grains are added. Usually triple-distilled and always aged a minimum of three years.

JAPANESE WHISKY
Whisky production in Japan began around 1870, but the first commercial production was in 1924 upon the opening of the country's first distillery, Yamazaki. Broadly speaking the style of Japanese whisky is more similar to that of Scotch whisky than Irish whiskey, and thus the spelling typically follows the Scottish convention (omitting the letter "e").

AMERICAN WHISKEY
If it’s not from Tennessee and not 51% corn, then it’s another kind of American whiskey and it’s probably rye. A “straight” whiskey has to contain at least 51% of the primary grain in its formula.
