William Shakespeare coined the phrase “too much of a good thing” in the 15th century. It is still valid in our world today, when there are times that excess can do harm. Here is a Whiskey Wednesday tip that will defray the harm that your excess may cause.

Whiskey Wisdom

Most cheap whiskeys and other spirits, such as gin and vodka are produced on a column still. Good whiskey is made in a pot still, which is a more precise way to cut out the distillates that make people sick – when they drink too much of a good thing.

That tip, paired with the following Whiskey Wednesday Wit will not only assist you, but also the Top Shelf Whiskey industry, as well.

This Whiskey Wednesday Post is going to the heart of the matter.

Wisdom

Today I am giving a bit of the history to the origin of the word whiskey (whisky).

Uisce beatha in Irish or Uisge beatha in Scottish is the literal translation in Gaelic for “water of life”. Uisce Beatha was translated from the Latin aqua vitae, used to describe spirits.

You can see why so many with Scottish or Irish heritage feel compelled, nearly obligated, to drink Irish or Scotch Whiskey. It is, after all, The Water of Life!
