Whether it’s Jack Daniel’s, Jim Beam, or Fireball, everybody is bound to have one kind of whiskey they like more than they admit. In fact, with the demand for whiskey far outpacing its supply in recent years, it’s becoming more and more common to see people enjoying a glass of their favorite brand while out at bars or after a long day at work.
There are always the critics, of course: People who claim that whiskey is an old man’s drink and continually insist that it “tastes terrible.” But what if I told you that you don’t have to feel bad about enjoying that double shot, because you can tell those naysayers that whiskey good for your health? Well, according to sites like Organic Facts and Food to Fitness, you can do just that! It turns out that drinking a little bit of whiskey (in moderation, of course) can indeed benefit your health, and here’s how!

Compared to a lot of mixed drinks and beers out there, whiskey is a low-calorie, low-sugar alcohol, so you can enjoy it without having to later worry about running off that dreaded beer gut.
2. It promotes heart health
Along with dark beers and wine, whiskey is one of the only other drinks that can claim the benefit of being heart healthy. The antioxidants that are in whiskey can help reduce your risk of a heart attack by lowering bad cholesterol, and even boosting your good cholesterol.
