Not only does whiskey have a strong historical tie to our great nation and amazing health benefits (with moderate consumption); but some of the best rock bands to ever exist wholly support this caramel colored liquid of life and have expressed so through their music!

History

Our country’s founding father, George Washington, also founded one of the country’s largest whiskey distilleries at the time; turning out 11,000 gallons of whiskey in 1799. Winston Churchill’s breakfast consisted of whiskey and water; and he lead our nation through World War 2. In the 18th Century, whiskey was a favored form of currency here in the U.S., which lead to the Whiskey Rebellion of 1794 as farmer’s fought to protect their liquor livelihood.

Health

Whiskey is low-carb AND fat-free, so put down that cran-vodka and pour yourself a stiff whiskey cocktail instead!

“Whiskey can protect you from cancer and science proves it.” – Dr. Jim Swan, speaking at the EuroMedLab conference held in Glasgow. With all the buzz that was going on around the benefits of Red Wine, everyone seemed to over look the fact that Single-Malt Whiskeys actually have more ellagic acid than red wine. And ellagic acid is a strong antioxidant that absorbs rogue cancer causing cells in the body.

Risks of ischemic strokes, heart disease and dementia can all be lowered by indulging in a light amount of whiskey thanks to all its antioxidants.

Feel free to do some research!
