Learn to Say Whisky in Over 80 Languages

Jules Verne took us around the World in eighty days but we want to take you around the Globe with Whisky in eighty languages, so you'll know how to order your beloved “Water of life” in almost every corner of the World. Let's go!

Flaviar is all about giving you the chance to explore some mighty fine spirits from all corners of the globe and our members are crazy about Tequila, Gin, Mezcal, Rum and other delights, but there’s a spirit that holds a special place in their hearts (and glasses). It’s Whisk(e)y!

With the “World Whisky Day” (and the travel season) coming up we thought now's the perfect time to freshen up our Whisky lingo. So we sent the Liquor Fairy on a trip, tasked to meet up with local bartenders and learn how to order Whisky around the world. She returned with a hangover and not much to remember. Luckily we found this nifty list of ways to say "Whisky" in more than eighty languages.
