THE WHISKEY STORY
Odds are that many of us don’t mind a splash of whiskey or two to welcome the new year. It is a beverage with a history that goes back to around 1000 to 1200 AD. The distillation process goes back even further. It was used to produce perfumes, aromatics, medicines and even fresh water from sea water before someone hit upon the idea of distilled spirits. Traveling monks are thought to have brought the process from mainland Europe to Scotland and Ireland. The monasteries there did not have the vineyards to provide grapes for distillation as was being done in Italy, so they turned to fermented grain mash and modern whisky was born. The Irish Annals of Clonmacnoise record the first written record of whisky, noting that a clan head died after consuming an excessive amount of “aqua vitae” at a 1405 Christmas celebration (office parties could be over the top even in those days). Whiskey manufacturing was done mostly by monks, until King Henry VIII dissolved the monasteries and monks went out in society and began the distillation of spirits for a living. The manufacturing spread across Europe and came to America where Scottish and Irish immigrants began using the grains and mash of North America. The oldest licensed distillery however dates from 1608 and is the Old Bushmills Distillery in Northern Ireland. It was not until 1783 that Evan Williams founded the first commercial American distillery in Louisville, KY. Governments, of course, found whiskey a fine commodity to tax. The English Malt Tax of 1725 drove many Scottish distilleries underground to produce their whiskey at night, giving rise to the term “moonshine”. In America, the 1791 Whiskey Tax, levied to pay Revolutionary War debt, sparked the Whiskey Rebellion of 1791. President Washington put down the mass protests with a militia of some 13,000 men. The unpopular tax continued and was finally repealed in 1801 by President Jefferson, who had pledged its repeal as part of his campaign platform. 1823 saw Dr. James C. Crow develop the sour mash process, in which some spent mash is added to the new mash. This improved consistency from batch to batch and is now a legal requirement for a Tenessee whisky. Old Bourbon County had been producing Old Bourbon County Whiskey for years. The name Bourbon was first coined when distiller Jacob Spears labeled his product Bourbon Whiskey. Prohibition banned alcohol for Americans, but there was a loophole that allowed doctors to prescribe medicinal whiskey and licensed pharmacies to sell it. Walgreens pharmacies must have embraced this medical need, as they grew from 20 to almost 400 stores during the prohibition period. The 1964 American Congress apparently had a taste for Bourbon, as they made it the official distilled spirit of the country and set down specific regulations that must be met to label a whiskey Bourbon. The American Whiskey Trail was launched in 2004 and spans distilleries and historical sites in Kentucky, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, Virginia and New York. There you have some of the highlights of the whiskey story. Now, glasses up … Happy New Year … cheers !
The first day of the month 0000Z through the last day of the month 2400Z
Just make ALL these words from calls of stations you work subject to the General Challenge Rules. (Any spaces in the phrases should be ignored. For example the challenge phrase "INVERTED V ANTENNA" should be treated as if it is the single word "INVERTEDVANTENNA.")
ANNALS OF CLONMACNOISE
ENGLISH MALT TAX
The 86 total letters contain these 24 different letters : A B C E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y
You can use each letter in a call TWICE. For example you could use K3WWP for 2 K's, 4 W's, and 2 P's.
Subsequent QSO's with the same station cannot be used for additional letters. For example, no matter how many times you work K3WWP, you can only use his call for 8 of the letters in the words.
See General Rule #5 for more details on what callsign letters can be used.
If you need some help with your alphabet challenge record keeping take a look at our Alphabet Tutorial page for everything from some great pencil & paper methods to fully computerized tools.
A certificate and Participation Point go to everyone making all the words and submitting their report before the deadline.
A Participation Point goes to everyone making at least 1, but not all the words and submitting their report before the deadline.
A choice of an item made by master woodworker Gregg WB8LZG as shown on our prizes page here goes to someone selected via a random drawing from all who participate and submit a report for this month's challenge. A person can only win once, then they become ineligible for future drawings.
For your report, list the words you made and the station used for each letter in the word. The number of stations listed must be the same as the number of letters in each word, even though you use the same station for more than one letter as in:
WORD - K3WWP N2OD WA8REI N2OD
NEXT - NF8M W8REI N8XMS K9EYT
(Note how N2OD is listed for both the O and D.)
You may also include comments about the challenge. Please preface any comments you want posted with "SOAPBOX:" so we will know what you want posted and what is private.

AH6AX: HAPPY 2019 TO ALL! Thanks to all of you who keep those challenges coming throughout the year. G3JFS: Conditions have been very poor and although I managed to get some proper qsos, including 2-way qrp ones, into the log it was hard going at times to make any contacts at all. My contacts were made on 20, 40 and 80 metres. 30m was a disappointment as I had only one qso on that band. 73 Peter N4OW: Thanks for another fun challenge. Happy 2019 to NAQCC ! 72 AL NF1U: With the holidays there were many more stations on the air, making this months challenge easier and quicker for me. found many openings on 30 meters also which contributed. KJ4R: Good month for me. Worked my first 80M QRP DX (F5IN) and a new QRP DXCC (9LY1JM) on 30 meters. Got through the pile up with many stations calling! Didn't need the letters for the challenge but new QRP DXCC - #121. QRP does work even in the bottom of the sunspot cycle. Had fun with the challenge as always. Even managed to finish before the end of the month. 73 to everyone. WB4OMM: Wow! Great propagation on the low bands this month. Was surprised at how easy it was to complete this challenge! 72/73! Steve AK3X: This one took a while with all the other activities going on this month (SKCC K3Y). Too bad I did not need a lot of Ks and Ys! I got down to needing three letter "S" and one more "O". Scanning around on 80 I heard W0SJS calling CQ and worked him, then just above him I heard K1OV calling CQ... voila, the challenge is finished. Always enjoy the challenges, except maybe for "GRID BINGO". 72 to all, Peter K1IEE: Early morning eastern time in Maine 20M worked very well this month. Almost all on 20M. Thanks to all 73 Dick VE3DQN: Almost came down to the wire to get my final O. Then OM3KFO had two of them! Could have used him earlier in the game :-) Seems like it's been a while since I had a clean sweep in the Challenge. KA5PVB: Happy New Year one and all!!! Tried the 4S Second Sunday Sprint (SSS) for the first time this month and completely skunked! 1 1/2 hours of CQing for ZERO Q's! 80 meter Inv V at 30 ft. must not be too good! Thanks to the organizers for this months Challenge. QRP for me has been spotty (good some days and ZERO other days - no matter what I tried). Hope to do better in February's Challenge! 73, Chuck in West Texas PA0XAW: Again, it was not easy to collect all the letters for this month challenge. But nevertheless, great fun! 73, Age WT4U: I hadn't been paying attention to the challenge until I plugged my calls into WB5RVZ's wonderful site and realized how close I was. I started too late to round up the stragglers, but now I'm ready for baseball and armed with a hunting list. N8XMS: Well, this wasn't the best start for the new year but as always it was fun and at least I managed to get a participation point. W2JEK: A GOOD CHALLENGE. LAST LETTER WAS O. GOT IT WITH TWO DAYS LEFT IN THE MONTH. LOTS OF FUN. 72/73 DON
