Whiskey Tasting

31 January 2020

Enjoy sampling some Irish Whiskeys. The word whiskey comes from the Gaelic words uisce beatha which translates as “water of life”. It is thought that whiskey was one of the first drinks to be distilled in Europe. Many, many years ago the Irish monks are said to have travelled throughout the Mediterranean countries and one of the skills they learned was how to distil perfume.
