Scottish word which comes from Scottish Gaelic - the literal meaning of 'dram' in English is simply 'drink', so it doesn't really have to be just whisky/spirits though it's normally used for these things.
Ex.1 'Gies a dram' (Please give me a drink, good sir)
Ex.2 'Gies a dram or I'll f**kin' chib yer heid' (I would very much appreciate a drink as soon as is convenient for you)
