Uisge beatha (pronounced Oosh-ga bee-hoo) means “water of life” in Scottish Gaelic.

This was the former word for whisky. As the national drink of Scotland, whisky has a history which is intimately linked to this territory.

This golden beverage has developed a wide range of aromas on these hilly lands. It is thought that distillation was imported to Great Britain during the 4th and 5th centuries

Since then, Scotland has seen the rise of five very different production regions. In the East, the Speyside region alone accounts for over half of the country’s distilleries. Its impressive Whisky Trail bears witness to this fact.

The culture of whisky has made an indelible impression on Scotland and the country has greatly contributed to its global distribution.

In the days of the British Empire, bottles of whisky featured in the Highlanders Regiments’ baggage, and thus began to conquer enthusiasts around the world.

Even today, Scotch is the expression of a centuries-old culture which is alive and well. Just come to a pub in Edinburgh or on the Isle of Skye to see how seriously Scotch whisky is taken.
