The word whisky is derived from the Gaelic word “usisge breatha” which translates to water of life.
Today marks the 10th anniversary of the official World Whisky Day celebration. It was created in 2012 by Blair Bowman and “invites everyone to try a dram and celebrate the water of life.” Although this year has been marked by a lot of difficulty, World Whisky Day is about making whisky fun for all, and remembering that whisky is a global drink shared by those all over the world.
“All you need to participate is a bottle of whisky/whiskey – whatever variety, however you enjoy it.” Whisky, and particularly Whisky Suggest, is also about exploring and enjoying the water of life without prescription. There are so many different traditions and flavors that make room for all. Over the coming months, we will be reaching out to hear your best whisky stories so that we can feature them here.
So celebrate World Whisky Day in any way you choose, maybe with something new, or special, or if possible with family and friends.
