CRAP !!
As with many other things, The process of distillation (heating an alcoholic
beverage in order to boil off, collect, and concentrate the alcohol) was
first used in China no later than 800 b.c. to produce rice spirits. About
the same time in other parts of Asia, distillation was used to produce
arrack, a beverage similar to rum, made from rice and sugarcane juice or
palm juice. The ancient Arabs, Greeks, and Romans all distilled wine to
produce beverages similar to modern brandy. The practice of distillation
spread to western Europe with the Arabs in the eighth century, particularly
in Spain and France.

Some claim that whiskey was invented in Ireland as long as 1,000 years ago
and carried to Scotland by monks. In any case, the first written records of
Scottish whiskey-making date as far back as 1494. (The word whiskey comes
from the Irish Gaelic uisge beatha or the Scottish Gaelic uisge baugh, both
meaning "water of life.")
