Already the ancient Egyptians knew the principle of distillation. However, they distilled perfume, not drinkable alcohol. Did one or the other priest know something? With the rise and downfall of the Greek and Roman Empire, the knowledge of distillation was lost. The dominating alcoholic beverage of that time was Wine, which almost produced itself. It matured well under the Mediterranean sun, and the fermentation also needed little attention.

But with the change of history and the iteration of the country. People had to be content with whisky made from fermented barly. Barley is the only grain that contains sufficing amounts of the enzyme that splits starch into sugar, which is then fermented by yeast.


But after a few hundred years of cultivation, the barley yielded well, and in 1494, whisky was first mentioned in a document in Scotland. The success was overwhelming, and with the progressing industrialisation and the mechanical production of the glass bottle, Whisky could start its global success story.
