Scotch origin?  Would that be the whisky or the tape?  :D
Early writing used the term Scotch and today we use the term Scottish.

My "John Williams" book, published in 1897 has the Bell family as being of Scotch origin. That was before Scotch tape, but I'm not sure when the whisky was first produced.
