Ich und ein anderer Klassenkamerad haben uns auf eine Eurokom Präsentation vorbereitet
und den Text den wir TEILWEISE auswendig lernen wollen um ihn dann MÖGLICHST auswendig vorzutragen schon fertig. Bilder haben wir auch schon und zwei DIN A3
Plakate die wir dann zusammenkleben fast fertig gestellt.
Hier wäre der Text teilweise:
1.WHAT is Whisky and what defines it?
A Whisky is one type of distilled alcohol beverage. It is made from fermented grain mash.
There are many different varieties depending on different things, like the grain, the barrel which was used,
the country where it was made, the distillation and some other factors.
The conditions for calling drinks "whisky" are the following:
- It has to be made by distilling barleymaltmash.
- The contained spirits should contain at least 94,8% alcohol.
- The whisky must have been riped 3 years in a wooden barrel that can't contain more than 700 liters.
- It should contain at least 40% alcohol.
- Some countries do have other laws for whisky, but those are the standart laws.
1.1.The root of the word "Whisky" and its original meaning
The word "Whisky" was made when the british people anglicisated the word uisce beatha, which means the same
as "water of life" or "lifewater". 1736 Whisky was mentioned the very first time.
2.The history of Whisky
It isn't clear, whether the whisky comes from Scotland or from Ireland, but a legend tells, that the Celts
were the first ones who made a clear fluid that was similar or the same like our whisky.
The first time that "aquavite", which is whisky, was mentioned in a document, was in the scottish
Exchequer Rolls in 1495. As time passed, more and more distilleries were build and every scottish clan
produced whisky for themselfes. After colonizing America, they did try to make whisky out of grain aswell.
They did ferment more wheat and rye than barley, because barley didn't grow very good in America.
Distilleries were build in Maryland, Pennsylvania and Virginia. The whisky didn't get it's characteristic
taste, because there wasn't found any peat over there. They tried to give the whisky it's taste by
using barrels, that were a little bit burned inside, so it get's the smoke like taste. The "real"
distilleries in America were made in the end of the 18th century.
2.1.Taxes, rights and the fights for Whisky
The first record of an licenced distillery dates from 1608. In this year king James I. gave Sir Thomas Phillips
the licence to distillate whisky in the county Antrim. 1643 whisky was officially taxed in Ireland, 1644 in
Scotland. 1661 because no one observed the laws and didn't pay taxes, whisky was declared as illegal in Ireland,
and then 1707 in Scotland, too. You had to have a state licence to legally produce whisky.
Sollte ich noch etwas daran verbessern oder sollten wir noch irgendetwas dazuholen dass unsere Präsentation unterstützt?
Ansonsten würde ich mich einfach aufs Auswendiglernen konzentrieren!
