Vodka is no longer “trendy”. Instead, it has fallen out of style as more and more young people like me are turning into whisky and gin.
If you are a fan of whisky in general there are certain facts that you must know about the kind of drink you usually have and since its #WorldWhiskyDay we might as well share these facts with you. 
So we asked Reserve Brands Ambassador of Diageo, Bradley Jacobs to highlight some of the whisky facts that he thinks every whisky fan should know. 

The flavour of smoke... 
Comes from the burning of something called peat while drying the barley and not from the water the distillery uses

Whisky in Gaelic... 
Reads ‘uisge beathe’, which means ‘water of life’

Whisky stored in barrels...
Gradually evaporates at an approximate rate of 2% a year. This is referred to as the famous ‘angels’ share’

Blended whisky... 
Came about at a time when single malt whisky was considerably younger and harsher than it is today. Blends consist of anywhere from 15 to 50 individual whiskies, testament to the blender’s art

Scotch whisky 
Can only be called Scotch whisky when it has been left for a minimum of three years to age in casks, in Scotland. Some casks hold whisky for considerably more time than this though
