Whisky: The "Water of Life"
It's no secret Scotland produces the finest blended and single-malt whiskies in the world. And no wonder: The Scots, taking advantage of their unique, peaty waters, have had at least 500 years of practice in perfecting the art of distillery.
The origins of Scotch are lost in the mists of history. However, it is known that the Celts in the British Isles began using grain, primarily malt, as a source of alcohol somewhere between the 10th and 15th centuries. The oldest known reference to Scotch whisky is from 1494, when the product was called usige beatha (pronounced “wee-ska-bah), meaning “water of life.” This was corrupted into usky or wusky and, in 1755, was included under its present spelling in Dr. Samuel Johnson's dictionary.
Whisky making was well-established in the country by the 16th century and first taxed in 1644. In 1909, it was declared that whisky wholly distilled in Scotland was Scotch and other countries agreed to this principal.
Today there are more than 100 Scottish distilleries producing single malts, which are bottled unblended or mixed with grain whiskies. Malts are made in four distinct regions of the country: the Highlands, the island of Islay, the Lowlands, and Campeltown. Classic Scottish malts are produced in the Highlands and are characteristically smooth and smoky. Island whiskies are dry and peaty. Campeltown products, used mostly for blending, are salty and tangy, while those of the Lowlands are soft and sweet.
