Whiskey The “Water of Life”
The word whiskey is derived from the Gaelic word “Uisge Beatha” which means “water of life”. That “water” flows freely here in the states.
Originally, when Whiskey first became popular it was consumed mainly by men; however those days are long gone. There is a huge opportunity with whiskey in the female market. What can we say? Everyone loves the smoky, rich and delicate tastes of whiskey; so try some of these delicious cocktails at your bar!
