Can it be spelled with either an “e” or without it? The reality is, “whisky” and “whiskey” are both correct, and it’s pretty easy to remember which spelling is correct. All American and Irish whiskey is spelled with an “e”. All other whisky, especially Scotch (from Scotland) is spelled without an “e”. So, when you are browsing a whisky online store, make sure to check to check if you are buying whiskey or whisky. (Both are delicious, so don’t worry about that!)
