History and Significance of International Whisk(e)y Day

International Whisk(e)y Day, celebrated annually on March 27th, pays homage to the craftsmanship and cultural significance of whiskey. The day commemorates the birthday of Michael Jackson, the renowned whiskey writer and enthusiast. It serves as a global platform to honour the art of whiskey making and the diverse flavours it embodies, with the ‘e’ in brackets highlighting whisky (no ‘e’), made in Scotland, Canada, and Japan, and whiskey (with an ‘e’), made in the USA and Ireland.  

Whiskey’s storied history spans centuries, originating with medieval monks in Ireland and Scotland who distilled spirits for medicinal purposes. Fast forward to today, and its evolved into the beloved spirit we know now. Scotch whisky embodies rugged landscapes and ancient distilleries, while American whiskey reflects the pioneering spirit of settlers in Kentucky and Tennessee. Across countries and continents, whiskey has become a symbol of cultural heritage celebrated for its rich flavours and craftsmanship. Tracing its roots back centuries, whiskey has been intertwined with the cultural fabric of various regions, each contributing its own unique nuances to the art of distillation.

At Diamanté Home, we try to incorporate this legacy into our glassware to enhance your whiskey experience. We invite enthusiasts and newcomers alike to raise a glass and toast to centuries of tradition.
