The Wall Street Journal, December 27, Like beer, its ancient precursor, whiskey is made with water, grains and yeast. For that we must thank an Egyptian alchemist from around the 2nd century named Maria Hebraea Mary the Jewess of Alexandria, whose celebrated inventions include the distillation pot. From the 17th century onward, Scotch-Irish emigrants to the New World brought their distillation techniques with them. But it was an Englishman, the Jamestown colonist George Thorpe, who learned that whiskey could be made just as easily with Indian corn. Thorpe was killed in the Powhatan massacre, but his inventiveness helped to create the American love affair with bourbon, which is made from corn and aged in charred new oak barrels.
