well i see now that i have to enter a langauge so i'm just going to guess one what langauge it is i really have know idea maybe you can still help
Explanation: Both Gerolamo and Zwanenberg are right.
The meaning is "water of life" and the pronunciation was transformed into whiskey by the English, which is what the term is used for most frequently.
I love Irish whiskey! Have you ever tried Powers, or Jameson, which is available in most stores. Truly invigorating.
