I recall being told that whisky is a good cure for anything from toothaches to colds and flu.
But one question I always had in mind growing up was does it really help? Or it’s all just a plot by its producers to get us drinking more of it?
So, I spoke to a whisky expert, Tommy Larkan about the truth behind this, if whisky can really cure flu and colds.
Larkan has been in the whisky industry since 1994 and has travelled to numerous countries talking whisky and visiting numerous distilleries.
He's currently working for a company that imports, market and sell whiskies from India and Scotland and tequila from Mexico.
