Irish Whiskey

Updated: Mar 11

The word “whiskey” comes from the Irish uisce beatha, pronounced WHOOSka-baw, meaning the water of life. Monks started brewing whiskey in Ireland in the 1100s. It was once the most popular liquor in the world! At the Lantern Jack pub featured in Lantern Jack—a title in my Celtic Magic series from Changeling Press-- they favor Red Breast Irish Whiskey, but some folks prefer Jameson’s, Tullamore Dew, Bushmills, or some of the fabulous small distilleries that have been returning in popularity around the Emerald Isle.
