But before we get into that, did you know there was anInternational Whiskey Day?

Yeah, mate, there’s actually a day to glorify whiskeys, read on to learn more.

History of International Whiskey Day

As one of the most well-known distilled spirits produced worldwide, whiskey has a long and illustrious history.

The term “whiskey” originates from the Gaelic, where it was initially referred to as “Uisce na Beatha,” which translates to “The Water of Life.”

After a while, the name was shortened to Uisce, which means “Water,” and the pronunciation went from Ish-Key to whiskey throughout that same period. Since then, things have remained the same.

Let’s travel through time…

The History Behind International Whiskey Day


Since the history of whiskey is inextricably linked to the account of International Whiskey Day, let's begin with its history.

The distillation process, known as Babylon, is responsible for producing whiskey. Babylon is a physical and chemical process. Whiskey production begins with creating a “mash,” a mixture of grain and water heated very slowly to bake bread from starch and convert it into sugars.

The type of whiskey that is  produced using this process is called wort. It is just the first step on an incredible journey of beverages. For instance, the mash used to make bourbon must contain at least 51% corn, but to be classified as corn whiskey, the percentage must be at least 81%.

A man named Michael Jackson.

March 27, 1942. The beginning of records documenting the annual celebration of International Whiskey Day was in 2008.

The day now celebrated worldwide as International Whiskey Day, was conceived in 2009 at the Whiskey Festival in Northern Netherlands.

The late Michael Jackson, an esteemed whiskey writer, was honored by creating the holiday now known as International Whiskey Day (birth March 27, 1942).

Michael Jackson is a well-known author and journalist from England who has penned several books on beer and whiskey.

His knowledge of malt whiskey and beer, in which he specialized, earned him great respect.

10 Whiskey Shirts for International Whiskey Day

1. You get sloppy drunk; I stay whiskey neat.

Whiskey - Neat T-Shirt

Thisneat whiskey t-shirt is a humorous way to express that while some people like mixers or dilution, others prefer to enjoy their whiskey neat.

It also suggests that you prefer whiskey's more complex and nuanced flavors and are generally just a "solitary" beverage drinker. Classy, we know!

2. Bad news: My relationship with whiskey is on the rocks.

Whiskey Business T-Shirt

Thiswhiskey business t-shirt is a clever play on words that suggests a rocky relationship with whiskey.
