    What countries make their own whiskey besides the US, Ireland, and UK?

    Which countries are most famous for their whiskey?  If it's only the three I mentioned above, why are these the only countries that make whiskey?

    The Scots (from Scotland) regard themselves as the only purveyors of real whiskey.

      No, they don't. See Angie497's comment above. The Scots produce Scotch *Whisky*. If you don't think that matters, tell a Scotsman next time you're drinking in Glasgow, see how he feels about it smile

    The US, Ireland and Scotland (not the UK), along with Canada, are probably the best known whiskey producers in the world, but they're far from the only ones. There are whiskeys produced all around the world, on every continent - for instance, the Japanese have become major whiskey enthusiasts.

    Although as a matter of trivia, the Scots produce whisky, not whiskey. The spellings are usually interchangeable, and the preferred spelling depends on geography, but in the case of Scotch, is it ALWAYS whisky.
