Did you know…?
Whisky is not the same as Whiskey
There is some debate about whether or not Scottish distilleries are the only ones who can call (spell) their whisky, whisky. But the general consensus is this:
Whisky: Scottish only
Whiskey: Everyone else
Factoid: Scots spell it without the “e” because they believe more vowels waste good drinking time.*
For those who dare to venture from the ‘neat’ or ‘on the rocks,’ here is our first Walker Whisky recipe of the week. And yes, I have tried and tested them all for you.
We’re starting the week off with…
