Irish Drink

Irish Whiskey
As the general catchall term for any whiskey brewed in Ireland, Irish whiskey covers multiple brands and methods of distillation of the golden  liquor. The word “whiskey” itself stems from the ancient Gaelic phrase uisce beatha, which can be translated as “water of life.” As a general guideline, most brands of Irish whiskey are distilled three times, as opposed to most Scotch whiskeys, which are distilled twice. Irish whiskey often has a smoother aftertaste since peat is rarely used in the malting process, avoiding the earthier, smoky notes.
