The name "Whisky/Whiskey" is derived from the anglicization of the classical Gaelic word uisce/uisge meaning "water" (now written as uisce in Irish Gaelic and uisge in Scottish Gaelic). Distilled alcohol was originally known in Latin as aqua vitae ("water of life"). This was translated into Classical Gaelic as Irish uisce beatha Scottish Gaelic: uisge beatha "water of life". Early forms of the word in English included uskebeaghe (1581), usquebaugh (1610), usquebath (1621), usquebae (1715).
The spelling whiskey is often used on Irish and American whiskeys, while all those produced in Scotland and other places around the world use whisky. Since the 1960s, American writers have increasingly used whiskey as the accepted spelling for aged grain spirits made in the US and whiskey for aged grain spirits made outside the US. However, some prominent American brands such as George Dickel, Makers Mark and Old Forester (all made by different companies) use the whiskey spelling on their labels.
Interesting fact: Whiskey does not age in the bottle, even if it ages after bottling, its taste does not change. However, the cost value can change as it becomes rarer - this is what investment whiskeys are derived from.
