    • TRIVIA (4)

      • Jack Daniel's is sold in 135 countries worldwide, but you can't buy a shot of it where it's made. Lynchburg, Tennessee is in a dry county.

      • The Buena Vista Café in San Francisco is the largest consumer of Irish whiskey in the United States. It serves about 2,000 Irish coffees ever day – a mixture of hot coffee Irish whiskey, sugar and cream.

      • Scotland produces over 750 million liters of whiskey each year. That's more than three bottle of Scotch for ever man, woman and child in the United States.

      • During Prohibition, one million gallons of Canadian liquor per year, 80% of that nation's output, made its way into the United States.

    • QUOTES (1)

      • Narrator: It stands tall as a grain, becomes beer with yeast, grows powerful in a still and old in a barrel, only to end up tasting like everything from the sea to grass to caramel. We'll toast St. Patrick in Dublin and have a dram in Denver and we'll find out what makes Scotch a single, Tennessee whiskey straight and Canadians great mixers. Whether you call it moonshine, bourbon or even the water of life, it's a real liquid asset. Now, the untold story of Whiskey, on Modern Marvels.
