JTT Why is Whisky In The Jar... (32) RE: Why is Whisky In The Jar... 20 Dec 99

Whiskey was sold in stone jars until the early 20th century. So saying "whiskey in the jar" was saying "whiskey in the bottle". Incidentally whatever language whiskey in the jar translates into ring dum a doo rum da, it's not Irish.
