In Homeric mythology wine was usually served in “mixing bowls” – it was traditionally consumed in an undiluted state – and was referred to as “Juice of the Gods”.

Beer is the world’s most widely consumed and probably the oldest of alcoholic beverages. It is the third most popular drink overall, after water and tea.


The name gin is derived from either the French “genièvre” or the Dutch “jenever”, which both mean juniper.


The origin of the word rum is generally unclear. In an 1824 essay written in England about the word’s origin, it is suggested that it might be from the term for “the best,” as in “having a rum time.”


The name vodka is a diminutive form of the Slavic word voda (water), interpreted as little water.


Tequila is a blue agave–based spirit made primarily in the area surrounding the city of Tequila and in the highlands (Los Altos) of the western Mexican state of Jalisco.


A liqueur is an alcoholic beverage that has been flavoured with fruit, herbs, spices, flowers or cream and bottled with added sugar. Liqueurs are typically quite sweet; they are usually not aged for long but may have resting periods during their production to allow flavours to marry.

Scotch Whisky

The first written mention of Scotch whisky was found in the Exchequer Rolls of Scotland, in 1495. A Friar named John Cor was the distiller. The Gaelic “usquebaugh”, meaning “Water of Life”, phonetically became “usky” and then “whisky” in English.

Bourbon, Canadian & Irish Whisky

The name of the spirit, Bourbon, derives from its historical association with an area known as “Old Bourbon”, around what is now Bourbon County, Kentucky.

Malt Whisky

Malt whisky is made from a fermented mash produced primarily from a malted grain. Unless otherwise specified, it is generally assumed that the primary grain is barley, although whisky is also made using malted rye. A whisky made from malted rye should therefore be called a “rye malt whisky” rather than simply a “malt whisky”.

Cognac & Brandy

Cognac, named after the town of Cognac in France, is a famous variety of brandy. As an Appellation d'origine contrôlée, in order to bear the name Cognac, the production methods for the distilled brandy must meet specified legal requirements. It must be made from certain grapes of these, Ugni Blanc, known locally as Saint-Emilion.
