Water gives whisky its life.
Water is possibly the most important element in whisky. It brings its unique character to the whisky’s flavour: the taste of the earth it journeyed through and the story of the sky that brought it into being.
The word “whisky” translates roughly from the Scottish Gaelic uisge beatha as “water of life.” It’s been made for hundreds of years in Scotland with the first written record appearing in 1494. Legally, it can only be described as Scotch if it is distilled in Scotland from grains, yeast and water, and aged a minimum of three years in oak casks.
We are privileged to play our part in continuing this ancient miracle of turning water into whisky!
