Whiskey is an All-season Spirit
Whiskey is perfect any time of the year. You can mix it into something refreshing in the summer and it can also be added to a cocktail to warm you up during cold weather. And of course you can enjoy it straight any day!
Whiskey Means “Water of Life”
The origin of the word whiskey has been attributed to the Gaelic phrase ‘uisce beatha’ as well as the Latin phrase ‘aqua vitae’ which both translate to “Water of Life.” Since regular water is so necessary to your body, a beverage called Water of Life is arguably even more important. Drink up and stay hydrated!
Low Carb and Fat Free
A lot of spirits are labeled as unhealthy, but the same cannot be said for whiskey. There is 0 fat and only 0.4 carbs in a shot of whiskey so don’t feel guilty about having a drink if you’re on a diet.

Reduce the Risk of a Stroke
Drinking in moderation (one drink per day) may provide protection against an ischemic stroke. The key word here is moderation.
