The Gift for the Lovers of Old School
For the love of cocktails! Buying for someone who has a passion for mixing drinks or outright just loves everything about Scotch whisky? Well, there’s a spirit on the comeback that will please lovers of Scotch whisky and excite the aspiring mixologists.
Returning with a new look in 2017, Drambuie has unveiled a new bottle design but fans of the spirit will be delighted to hear the liquid inside remains unchanged. In fact, the recipe for this much-loved liqueur hasn’t changed in about 250 years and for a good reason. Drambuie features rich scotch whisky tones, heather honey sweetness and intricate layers of herbs and spices. The rich and complex liqueur found fame in 1960s New York as the base of the iconic cocktail, the Rusty Nail, popular with the legendary Rat Pack. With classic cocktails making a comeback such as the ‘Whisky Sour, ‘Old Fashioned’, ‘Negroni’ and ‘Tom Collins’, Drambuie’s Rusty Nail is slated to join their ranks and make a comeback in 2018.
Popping up on menus again in a variety of different ways including new takes on coffee cocktails, punches and much more, it’s hard to find a liquor Drambuie doesn’t work well with. For this reason, aspiring mixologists won’t be able to put this spirit down; they’ll be continually looking for exciting new ways to incorporate this classic into their next creation.
