Is there a difference between Whisky & Whiskey?

I recently worked on a couple of presentationsrevolving around liquor.. I saw these two terms getting used interchangeably.

I am really confused.. because I have a niggling feeling that there is a difference between the two words…

And talking on this .. is there a search engine where you can run a comparative search on two terms or phrases…?

 Please help…

Stewie for Governor!!! I already said help…



  1. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whisky#Names_and_spellings

    Whisky is Scotch.
    Whisk[b]e[/b]y is Irish.

    That’s the only difference.


  2. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whisky#Names_and_spellings

    Whiskey is Irish
    Whisky is Scotch

    That’s the only difference.

    And to compare stuff…

    Type the two words in Google, and then type the phrase site:wikipedia.org after it.

    works better than wiki’s own search engine.


  3. Whisky, or whiskey, refers to a broad category of alcoholic beverages that are distilled from fermented grain mash and aged in wooden casks (generally oak). Different grains are used for different varieties, including barley, malted barley, rye, malted rye, wheat, and maize (corn).
