What does Whisky have to do with curing Parkinson’s? Well, today’s International Whisk(e)y Day,
a day to raise a glass to commemorate the dearly departed whisky-writer, Michael Jackson. He was a celebrated journalist who penned several influential books about whiskey and beer which have sold millions of copies around the globe and have been translated into eighteen different languages. After several years of treating and writing about whisky the way the French would about their wine, he suffered a cardiac arrest due to complications with Parkinson’s disease which he had been suffering from for at least a decade before his death.
