Whiskeypedia: A tipsy trip through the history of our favorite spirit

Photographer: Design: Mike Haas

Call it whiskey, whisky, Scotch, bourbon or the water of life, we love the brown stuff  – and apparently so did (most) everyone else in the last 600 years.

Whiskey runs through the veins of history; whether the subject is economics, politics, music or comedy, whiskey will be found right in the middle of the action. Check out our timeline full of fun facts, local history and important dates, and follow our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts for trivia questions throughout January.

It’s like an encyclopedia for whiskey – a whiskeypedia!
