Don't Get Too Tipsy: Fall Safety Netting Supports the Distillery Industry
Whiskory (Whiskey History)
Everyone knows a whiskey lover, whether it's you, a family member, or a friend. But, they are not the only ones. Whiskey originated 1000 years ago, between 1000-1200 AD. Monks migrated from mainland Europe to Scotland and Ireland. They discovered no vineyards or grapes on this land: therefore, monks fermented grain mash, the original origin of distilled modern whiskey.
In 1608, Old Bushmills Distillery became licensed in Northern Ireland. Today, the distillery holds the title "oldest licensed whiskey distillery in the world."
From 1775-1783, whiskey was a form of currency during the American Revolutionary War. Due to its value, the general population found this to be an honorable trade.
From 1920 to 1933, medicinal whiskey prescriptions were common in licensed pharmacies for patients during America's prohibition.
Whiskey is relevant in world history. The whiskey industry has impacted culture, economy, and civilization. The consumption of bourbon increased, and production became more efficient with time.
