New DElhi, May 16 (IANSlife) Today is the one day, that Whisky is officially celebrated as its the ‘World Whisky Day (WWD)’ (we know secretly you’ve been celebrating it everyday since the lockdown).

First founded in 2012 by whisky consultant Blair Bowman, the day is an annual celebration of the spirit and takes place on the third Saturday of May each year.

Scotch is one of the most celebrated spirits across the world and one can find several occasions to enjoy a peg of their favourite whisky in several ways – on the rocks, with a mixer, or as a cocktail.
