Whisky was originally referred to as "uisce beatha" in Gaelic, which translates to "water of life". This name likely originated from the belief that distilled spirits had medicinal properties and could be used to treat a variety of ailments. Additionally, whisky was often used in religious ceremonies and was considered to have spiritual significance. The name "water of life" also likely refers to the high alcohol content of whisky, which can be used to preserve and disinfect water. In Scotland and Ireland, where whisky was first distilled, clean drinking water was often scarce, so whisky was used as a safer alternative.
Another reason for the name 'water of life' might be the social context. Whisky was often a common drink for the people, especially for the working class. The name "water of life" would be a metaphor for how whisky is a source of life and vitality, giving energy and warmth to the body, and being a source of pleasure and conviviality.
