Drambuie is a whisky liqueur that is made up of aged Scotch whisky, spices, herbs & heather honey. Its origins can be traced to a secret recipe created for Bonnie Prince Charlie by his Royal Apothecary in the 18th Century. The name Drambuie is derived from Scots Gaelic ‘An Dram Buidheach’ and means “The Drink that Satisfies”. Perfect over ice or in a classic Rusty Nail.
The story of Drambuie began in 1745 when it arrived on British shores under the guardianship of its original custodian, Prince Charles Edward Stuart (known as Bonnie Prince Charlie). It was the Prince’s personal draft, and he drank a few drops each day for strength and vitality. In 2014, The Drambuie recipe was passed on from one family owned company to another as William Grant & Sons acquired the brand. Since the handover the recipe has been kept in a safe at their blending facility near Glasgow. Only three people know the recipe, one of whom personally mixes each batch of Drambuie essence and is the fifth generation of their founder, William Grant.
