Facts Check Analysis: Only as per the belief, there is no documentary proof of this, In some mines, the owners of the mine would give a drink to miners at the end of the shift to get some relief from cold. Workers would eagerly look forward to it and would call it ‘Precious Evening Glass’ which in short became ‘peg’.

But in the UK, there is nothing called "PEG" for liquor. Either it's Single (25ml) or Double (50ml).

A peg is a unit of volume, typically used to measure amounts of liquor in the Indian subcontinent. Equal to 30 mL, the terms "large peg" and "small peg" are also the time of the British Raj, and presumably for the sake of convenience was later standardized to 30 mL.

There is nothing as the standard full form of this commonly loved word used by many drinkers, peg. For many it would just mean asking for a certain quantity of whiskey in a glass and calling, please give me one more peg.
