8 of the Best Places For Whiskey Cocktails In Boise
It's a big day today! A day that so many people overlook, it's International Whiskey Day! I love this. The Gaelic language gave the term "the water of life" to whiskey. International Whiskey Day was created in 2009 at a Whiskey Festival in Northern Netherlands. It was created to honor Michael James Jackson, a great whiskey writer. He was born on March 27, 1942. He wrote numerous books on beer and whiskey and graded his whiskey on a scale of zero to 100, 75 being that the whiskey was worth buying.
Do you have a favorite whiskey?
Some of the most popular whiskey cocktails include the Whiskey Sour, Hot Toddy, Manhattan, and Old Fashioned. There's a long list of great whiskey cocktails, but that's not why you're here. Reading about International Whiskey Day, I discovered the term "angels share." 2% of the whiskey in barrels each year is lost to evaporation, and in some cultures, it's referred to as the "angels share."
What's your favorite whiskey cocktail?
National Today also mentions that "during prohibition, whiskey would have been outlawed had it not been for a medical loophole, but it wasn't prohibited because of legislation allowing doctors to prescribe whiskey as medication."
Yes, you can go anywhere, and they can have whiskey on the rocks or a whiskey neat, but when creating some great cocktails, these places in the Treasure Valley stand out. Unfortunately, because today is a Monday (March 27), some of these establishments are closed, but you can still celebrate International Whiskey Day tomorrow, right?
