        Do the British spell whiskey “whisky?”

          It can probably be spelled either way...same as here. Why?

              I had never seen it spelled whisky, but I looked it up and see that usually in the U.S. it is whiskey, but other areas in the world it is whisky. (I’m not a drinker, so never knew this)

                I don't drink whisky either.

                  “Whisky” can only be proper whisky,  i.e. Scotch whisky from Scotland. “Whiskey” is more generic for the Irish (and elsewhere) versions.

                    Thanks for the info. Btw, there is a new TV show here in the U.S. called Whiskey Cavalier! 😂
