The History of Whiskey

The History of Whiskey

Whiskey or as the Gaelic culture refers to it as the water of life. This beloved liquor is to have originated in the country of either Scotland or Ireland, which is still a murky argument between the two countries to this day. Moreover, the creation of whiskey dates back to the early 1500s. In America during and after the Revolutionary War, whiskey became a popular and profitable drink of choice for many Americans. During this time, whiskey was unique and different from all other liquors because of the ability to farm its main ingredient, corn, and the ability to mass-produce it within the 13 colonies. It has been said that whiskey was the backbone of the early US economy due to the significant consumption of the liquor by the American people. In fact, in the 1830s, the consumption per capita, per person, was astonishing. At its peak, the average American consumed about 1.7 bottles of whiskey per week or 88 bottles per year (US Whiskey Report).
