首先，我要注意这种酒精饮料的名称。威士忌语言学家在英语单词whiskey中发现了充满活力的凯尔特人根源，名字来源于凯尔特人“uisge beatha”, which means “water of life.”这个词相当于拉丁文“aqua vitae”，将威士忌提升到优质饮品的地位。
苏格兰威士忌的历史令人难以置信，而蒸馏过程的起源仍然是个谜。凯尔特人参与了的蒸馏，并称其结果“fiery” liquid the “water of life”仍然是事实。几个世纪后，苏格兰的蒸馏艺术发生了许多变化，而且“water of life”已经变成苏格兰威士忌–现在全世界都喜欢的饮料。
In one of the records of the Treasury tax reports of 1494 it was written “To give monk John Koru eight boxes of barley to produce 生命之水”. Apparently, in the XIII century the monks were just masters in creating whiskey, since one can make one and a half thousand bottles of distillate alcohol from such a quantity of barley (8 baskets).
Today it is difficult to say exactly how to find the best Scotch whiskey, and the brands of Scotch whiskey are surprisingly diverse. 苏格兰人whiskey is drunk 通过 the whole world for a long time. It has become the property of the nation and the pride of Scotland. In honor of this amazing drink in the capital of Scotland, Edinburgh, the 苏格兰人Whiskey Museum was 开了 under the name 苏格兰威士忌 Experience. 的 Museum of Scotch whiskey is a copy of the distillery, and within an hour, experts will show you all the stages of production of whiskey, talk about how to drink Scotch whiskey, and even offer to try a sip of Scotch whiskey, colloquially known as “dram” in the whiskey speaking world.
什么是“dram” of whiskey? 在苏格兰，一部分威士忌通常被称为“dram”. In bars and restaurants you will be poured with a 德拉姆 so 那the drink will barely cover the bottom of the glass.
So the expression “good 德拉姆” means 那whiskey is poured three fingers from the bottom of the glass. Do not forget 那knowing how to drink Scotch whiskey is very important. This is a drink with a rich history, so the culture of drinking it is a very important point.
