International Whisk(e)y Day

March 27 is International Whisk(e)y Day, not to be confused with World Whiskey Day which is May 16. The name is used with the parenthesis to indicate support of Scottish, Canadian, and Japanese whiskies (no e) as well as Irish and American whiskeys (with an e). The day publicly supports Parkinson’s disease research in addition to enjoying Whiskey.

International Whiskey Day was launched in 2009 at the Whiskey Day Festival in the northern Netherlands in the presence of several whiskey writers. The event was created in honor of British writer Michael Jackson and is celebrated on Jackson’s birthday.
