Whoa, whoa, whoa... let's give credit where credit is due. Although the Scots have been distilling for quite some time, the first written record of whiskey in Ireland (1405) predates the first reference in Scotland (1494) by almost a century.

And why would you want to go to England? All they make is gin.
