In meaning, whisky translates to “water of life”. Whisky originated from Scotland during the early 1400’s, and is very popular around the world today. Even today, whisky tastes much like it did when it first began. Manufacturers of whisky are strong on heritage, and therefore do all they can to capture the flavor that whisky has always been known for.
A SYMBOL OF COMMITMENT
For any occasion, whisky is truly great. It is commonly used during weddings and ceremonies, and both the bride and groom will drink it to signify a relationship that will stand the test of time. The drink isn’t only served with weddings, as it is also popular in bars and restaurants as well. Those wishing to signify friendship can also serve whisky. For those looking for a bottle to tie the knot, we recommend this one from our personal cellar.
AS A GIFT
Whisky also makes a great gift for friends, employees, and even executives. Around the office, whisky is very popular. When someone has had a tough day at work, few things bring out the best as it can. It can help someone relax, and make them feel at ease. Drink enough of it, however – and you will feel as if you are the king of the world! For those looking to gift a bottle, we recommend this bottle from our collection.
ON THE ROCKS
Although there are many great combinations, one of the best is ice cubes. When combined with ice cubes, the flavour is truly inspiring. People often refer to it as whisky on the rocks and it is very commonly served in bars and restaurants. Whisky on the rocks is also refreshing, as the ice cubes help to take some of the “bite” away from the otherwise strong and potent drink. We recommend trying this bottle from our collection for it’s sweet and spicy flavour. When paired with ice, zesty orange tones come forth.
There are several variations of whisky as well. Scottish whisky, Jack Daniels, and Wild Turkey are among the most popular. Scottish whisky is very popular in different parts of the world, while Jack Daniels is the preferred brand in the United States. Jack is served at many bars and restaurants and provides a great mixed drink if you pair it with Coke. If you’re interested in tasting any variation, you can find them in our personal collection.
If you’re looking to buy some for your home, you’ll never have to worry about having trouble finding it. ABC stores are the best source, although if you live in a state such as California you can find it at your local grocery or department store. Whisky is one of the best selling forms of hard liquor, with thousands of people around the world drinking it quite frequently. You can also find a ready to ship bottle online.

Easy to find and easy to use, whisky is easily one of the best types of alcohol that you can buy. You can use it at parties or socials, or just keep it for yourself. Whisky is also great for the body if you drink a shot of it a day. With various ways to be used and a bold crisp flavor – whisky is something that you can never go wrong with.
