Whisky vs. Whiskey, Now that’s a spirited debate!

Do you drink Whiskey? Or do you drink Whisky? Before we explore the unique barley, corn, rye, and wheat varieties, let's find out the difference. When Whiskey is spelled with an "E" these whiskeys are in the United States and Ireland. When it is spelled whisky without an "E" these whiskies are typically in Scotland and Canada. So, however you Whiskey or Whisky, we have curated a list of excellent choices at The Venetian Resort for every barley, corn, rye, or wheat lover.
