Probably the world’s most esteemed whisky liqueur, certainly the most popular. This is a drink with a storied history that dates way back to 1746. The legend holds that after the Battle of Culloden Bonnie Prince Charlie fled to the Isle of Skye, where he was sheltered by Clan MacKinnon. The Prince was so grateful to their assistance that he passed them his specialist drink recipe. Later in the 19th century, the Clan passed the recipe on to John Ross whose son James ran a hotel on the island. After John’s death, James began to tinker with the recipe, replacing the brandy base with one of Scotch whisky (and thus creating the signature Drambuie style). James Ross started serving this concoction at his hotel, calling it Drambuie. Soon the drink was being sold further afield, in America and Europe, and gaining the honour of being the first liqueur stored in the House of Lords’ Cellar. Since then the drink has gone from strength to strength, beguiling people around the world with its delicious blend of Scotch whisky, herbs, and honey. Perfect for whisky drinkers who fancy something a little different, and one half of the classic “Rusty Nail” cocktail.
