The country of Ireland is divided into two parts: Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom, and the independent Republic of Ireland in the south. Despite the climate there is some wine making, mainly in the South of Ireland. There is even one winery producing organic red and rosé wines. Thomas Walk Vineyard is family owned and commited to sustainable/organic viticulture and wine making since 25 years.
The main contribution to the booze world out of both parts of Ireland is “Usquebaugh,” or “uisce beatha,” both meaning “water of life” and later anglicized to “Whiskey.” Here it is spelled with the ‘e’ whereas in Scotland it is without. Whiskey distillation began in Ireland around 1000 AD when monks, who had learned the technique in their travels to the Middle East, began the practice from malted barley or oats at home. This brew was eventually sold at market, and became a popular beverage throughout the land. Legal Read more »
