Incredibly rich and honeyed on the nose with a beautiful melange of herbs, spices, heather, roots, and ginger. Rich and silky on the palate with a sweet, mature malt whisky backbone flanked by waves of viscous honey infused with heather, herbs, and roots
Is the Drambuie that you advertise for sale the same in your product picture(brown bottle) or is it in the new bottle(clear bottle) design that was released a few years ago? I would very much like to clarify this befofe I purchase. Thank you for your help.
This is my second purchase of this product from Wine Chateau. I am very pleased with this shipment as well. Delivery was very prompt and packaging was superb. I will continue to buy Drambuie from Wine Chateau when I can save money and have it delivered to my door.
I have enjoyed this liquer for many years - it is superb! Wine Chateau delivered my order for a case via FedEx without any problems. The bottles were well packed and I knew exactly when the FedEx delivery would occur so I could be home to sign for the shipment. Using the FedEx tracking number is a real convenience and they arrive on the date they say they will. I saved a lot of money when compared to prices elsewhere even when shipping is added. I am very pleased with my first experience using Wine Chateau.
After the Battle of Culloden in 1746, Prince Charles Edward Stuart fled to the island of Skye. There, he was given sanctuary by Captain John MacKinnon of Clan MacKinnon. According to family legend, after staying with the captain, the prince rewarded him with this prized drink recipe. This version of events is disputed by historians who believe it to be a story concocted to boost sales of the drink. The legend holds that the recipe was then given in the late 19th century by Clan MacKinnon to James Ross. Ross ran the Broadford Hotel on Skye, where he developed and improved the recipe, initially for his friends and then later to patrons in the 1870s. It was one of these friends who coined the name. Ross then sold it further afield, eventually to France and the United States. The name was registered as a trademark in 1893. Ross died young, and to pay for their children's education, his widow was obliged to sell the recipe, by coincidence to a different MacKinnon family, in the early 20th century. The latter MacKinnon family has been producing the drink since. The first commercial distribution of Drambuie, in Edinburgh, was in 1910. Only twelve cases were originally sold. In 1916, Drambuie became the first liqueur to be allowed in the cellars of the House of Lords, and Drambuie began to ship world-wide to stationed British soldiers. In the 1980s, the producers of Drambuie began to advertise the liqueur. More recently work has been done to strengthen the reputation of the brand.
