While doing a Berthoud Surveyor newspaper review on the Dancing Pines Distillery, they told me they plan to produce some bourbon or rye whisky.
Coincidentally or due to serendipity, I came across a post today that tells the about whiskey vs. whisky, scotch, Irish whiskey, Tennessee whisky, etc.
Good stuff. The whiskey vs. whisky website is worth a look. Through there Broken Secret blog, I l learned that:
- whiskey is Irish and the United States while whisky is the term for other countries.
- whisky is a Gaelic word that means, “water of life” (go figure)
- Scotch is made in Scotland. (makes sense)
- Bourbon is named after Bourbon County, Kentucky.
