Take a Rob Roy and switch some of the sweet vermouth for rich flavoursome PX sherry, add a dash or three of orange bitters and you've a William Wallace. A well-conceived cocktail that if you nail the dilution (hence the optional chilled water) is both spirituous and quaffable. Be warned!


Adapted from a recipe created in 2019 by Manchester's Joe Schofield, who says, "The William Wallace is inspired by and takes elements from the Rob Roy and Bobby Burns and is named after another Scottish hero with an alliterate name."

Joe's original recipe specified a Coupe but we felt the drink's volume better suited a Nick & Nora. It is also a cocktail that likes dilution, hence our recommendation to add some chilled water if using ice straight from the freezer (rather than an ice-machine).
