Celebrate the Water of Life on World Whisky Day

Whisky has been around for centuries, with a rich history and a loyal following. No matter the brand, age, or distillery, whisky is a liquor enjoyed all over the world by both enthusiasts and the casual drinker. It’s not every day that you get to celebrate the very existence of the water of life. So what better way to celebrate this beloved spirit than with World Whisky Day? Yup, there is such a thing as World Whisky Day! Here’s everything you need to know about it, so you can properly celebrate this year.

What is World Whisky Day?

World Whisky Day is a day dedicated to celebrating all things whisky. It falls on the third Saturday in May each year, so this year we’ll be celebrating on the 20th! World Whisky Day was first established in 2012 by Blair Bowman, a Scottish whisky enthusiast. The day has since grown in popularity, with events and tastings taking place all over the world.

The history of World Whisky Day

Although whisky has been enjoyed for centuries, the idea of dedicating a day to the spirit is a relatively new one. In 2012, Blair Bowman created the first World Whisky Day with the aim of getting more people interested in whisky. His vision was to make whisky accessible to everyone, regardless of their background or knowledge of the spirit.

Since then, World Whisky Day has become a day for whisky lovers to come together and celebrate their shared passion for the spirit.

How to celebrate World Whisky Day at home

Whether you’re a whisky lover or you’re just getting started, World Whisky Day is the perfect excuse to indulge in a dram of whisky. But how can you celebrate the day at home? Here are just some ideas:

Host a whisky tasting

World Whisky Day is best spent together with friends and family. After all, you wouldn’t want to be celebrating by drinking alone! Invite some people over and host a whisky tasting. To make things interesting, you can choose a selection of whiskies from different regions or distilleries and compare the flavors and aromas. You could even blind taste them and try to guess which one is which!

Cook with whisky

Whisky is a versatile ingredient that can add a unique flavor to dishes. Why not try cooking with whisky on World Whisky Day? Make a whisky sauce for your steak, or add a splash of whisky to your dessert.

Learn about whisky

If you’re a newbie to the whisky world, you can use World Whisky Day as an opportunity to learn more about the spirit. Read up on the history of whisky, watch a documentary about the production process, or attend a virtual whisky masterclass.

Make a whisky cocktail

Whisky cocktails are a great way to experiment with the spirit. Try making a few of the classic whisky-based cocktails like the Old Fashioned or a modern twist on a Whisky Sour. You could even create your own signature cocktail using your favorite whisky. Grab yourself ingredients at Red & White!
