Drambuie, a herbal Scotch whisky based liqueur, traces its origins back to James Edward Stuart, better known as Bonnie Prince Charlie, and the liqueur is said to be based on the Bonnie Prince’s own personal elixir.
While the liquid inside remains unchanged, Autumn 2009 saw the introduction of new slick packaging for Drambuie. It is not just that Drambuie received a facelift, it underwent more a face transplant from an all together taller, thinner, younger and sexier donor.
We’ve over 50 cocktail recipes made using Drambuie on Difford’s Guide.
