What is correct - whisky or whiskey? Both spellings are correct, as is so often the case, it depends on the country of origin. The spelling ‘whiskey’ comes from Ireland and Irish emigrants took the "e" with them to the USA. In other countries, ‘whisky’ is spelt without the additional letter.
The name "Whisk (e) y" has its origins in the Latin "Aqua Vitae" (translated: Water of Life) - Irish monks, as you can read on the Internet, translated Aqua Vitae into Gaelic "UIsge Beatha", so the rural population understood what it's about as well.
Even to this day it is debatable where whisk (e) y originally came from. Some sources say the Irish invented it, others attribute the "patent" to the Scots. However, it is widely believed that whisk (e) y originated in Ireland.
