Irish Whiskey

Derived from a Gaelic term meaning “water of life,” Irish whiskey is one of the oldest distilled beverages in the world. (Irish monks may have actually taught the Scots the art of distillation.) It’s also one of the most popular spirits on Earth. Over the last couple years, Irish distillers have had trouble keeping up with rapidly increasing demand. A key reason for these robust sales is Irish whiskey’s signature smoothness and sweetness, which makes it incredibly easy to drink. This unique flavor profile is due to two major factors: The whiskey is usually distilled three times, and the barley is rarely dried over burning peat. (Most Scotch is distilled twice and the malt is often peated, giving a smoky flavor.)
