Great holmertz 2020-12-18 9:51

Hello Jean,
Visits to factories or breweries or any place where you can see how ordinary "things" are produced are always fascinating. In Dublin my friend and I went to see the Guinness brewery, but I mainly remember being disappointed that we were only offered a half pint free. ;-)
You composed this photo well. There is no doubt where we are, and the woman being stored in a barrel, probably busy producing a whisky with a smoky tinge, makes a perfect foreground. The WS photos are very good complements.
But isn't Jameson's product actually spelled 'whiskey'?
Best regards,
Gert

Default To holmertz: Whiskey or whisky?

Hello Gert, I checked on the spelling to discover that Irish whisky is spelt without the 'e', whereas the Scottish whiskey is spelt with the 'e'.

Scotch Whisky. Definitely no 'e' in the Scottish version.

Scotch Whisky. Definitely no 'e' in the Scottish version. The spelling of Scotch whisky (no e) is enshrined in law.
