Lot number: 067-2260


Ronald Morrison, wine and whisky merchant, created a liqueur that would warm and comfort his loyal customers. Based in Leith, Morrison used exotic ingredients from far off lands, such as tangerines, honey and spices, which, when mixed with the Scotch malt whisky, created a surprisingly distinctive and pleasant flavour.

35% ABV / 70cl


On fleeing from the Isle of Skye, in the chaos that was the end of the 1745 Jacobite uprising, legend has it that Bonnie Prince Charlie bequeathed the recipe of his personal elixir to his loyal supporter Captain John MacKinnon. There it remained, lost in the mists of time for over a century, until it began to be produced at The Broadford Hotel by James Ross. It soon became known as An Dram Buidheach – the drink that satisfies - and was then registered as Drambuie in 1893.

40%ABV / 70cl
