Duffys Malt Whisky has a interesting history, it was created by one Walter B Duffy in 1868.   By invoking malt in its name (malt was considered healthful at the time) Duffy could market his whiskey as a medicine, thereby evading liquor taxes, and still sell booze to those of the temperance movement.  Outlandish marketing ie; “in old age, in illness, in all cases of weakened vitality, nothing is so quick and permanently beneficial as…”  led to ever increasing scrutiny.  This culminated in a 1907 Food and Drug Administration inquiry.  At which the presiding official  stated  “Duffy’s Malt Whiskey is one of the most gigantic frauds of the age and a flagrant violation of the law”.
