Origin of the word ‘peg’?

The word “peg” is believed to have originated in the United Kingdom, where miners were given a small bottle of brandy to help them relax after a long, cold day of work. The miners eagerly awaited their small glass of brandy, which they began to refer to as their “precious evening glass.” Over time, this term evolved into the word “peg,” which is used in India until today. Fascinating, isn’t it?
