Whisky comes from the language Gaulia for "water" (uisce or uisge). In Scotland called uisge-beatha, whereas in Ireland called uisce beatha meaning "water of life". Both are related to the Latin aqua vitae which also means "water of life". Scot wrote it as an Irish whiskey while writing it as whiskey (plus the letter "e").
Note that the oldest of the whiskey comes from 1405 in Ireland, which tells the monks made whiskey. The same was recorded in Scotland in 1496. Nevertheless, the whiskey is estimated to already have at least several hundred years earlier. At that time, whiskey is made in many places, and not recorded specifically. As a result, the year the first time whiskey made as well as place of origin is unknown. In addition, there is the possibility of different groups of people who have nothing to do with one another, separately discovered the distillation process.
