Names Whisky or Whiskey?

Its a bit strange, the spelling is with an "e" for Irish or American. However the "e" is dropped for Scottish or Canadian. The origional name for Whisky was Uisce Beatha, which in Gaelic means "water of life" Many whiskies from Scotland carry the old gaelic names, AnCnoic which means hill,and Glenfiddich which means deer.
