Irish whiskey is also known as “uisce betha,” which means “water of life” in Gaelic. Erin's delicious export's origin story is wrapped up in myth. Still, one could argue that its creation is the aftermath of medieval monks' perfume-making aspirations, which led to the repurposing of the distillation process for far better use - the creation of spirits. More importantly, Irish whiskey.
Legally, whiskey born and raised in Ireland is classified as Irish Whiskey. The only other requirements are that it must be distilled to no higher than 94.8% ABV and matured for at least three years.
One of the preferred methods of crafting Irish Whiskey is single-pot still, but judging from the drams' increasing popularity, you'll do well to get your hands on any expression. Slainte!
