The word "whiskey" is an Anglicisation of the the Gaelic phrase, uisce beatha, meaning "water of life" , so it's no wonder that many would claim Ireland is the birthplace of whisk(e)y.
Which ever way you lean, there's no denying some great whiskey comes from the Emerald Isle - with many more yet to come.

Irish Whiskey

Made from 100% malted barley by one single distillery, in a pot still (rather than a column still).

Can be made from corn or wheat and is distilled in a column (or continuous) still. Irish Grain whiskeys are light in style.

As with Grain Whiskey, but only a single grain is used in production. This is a newer distinction, of which Greenore is a good example.

Single Pot Still (used to be known as “Pure Pot Still”) whiskey is a blend of both malted and unmalted barley distilled in a pot still. This style is a whiskey style unique to Ireland.

Has to be made of at least 90% Irish Whisky. Great examples of this style include Jameson or Kilbeggan.

Also known as Potcheen, Poteen, Potheen or Irish Moonshine. This is effectively new-make spirit, or spirit which has not spent enough time ageing to meet the requirements to be called Irish Whiskey.

Derived from the Irish word ‘Pota’ which referred to the small pot-still the whiskey was distilled in. ‘Poit’ also means ‘hangover’..
