Whisky is a distilled alcoholic drink that is made from fermented wheat, rye, barley, and sometimes corn. Strictly speaking, the word whisky is an anglicisation of the Irish word “uisge beathaā€¯ which means “water of life.”. There are many different kinds of whisky available such as Scotch whisky, Irish whisky, Canadian whisky, Bourbon whisky, and Tennessee whiskey – with each having their own unique taste characteristics. Of course being Scottish we would be slightly biased to which ones we prefer, but we do stock a wide range in our Edinburgh warehouse for you to enjoy in the comfort of your own home.
