Animals drink whiskey xD

I once learned from an Irish podcast that the phrase for whiskey literally translates to "water of life" :D

Would something like 'Tá aimhithe ag ól uisce' work? Or is that a really jumbled sentence? Is it present continuous, and if so is there always a difference in Irish?

It's the present continuous. And, yes, there's always a differencr.

That would be "animals are drinking water" But Idk if you could say ól for that or if it would need to be óleann
