BourbonBlog.com toasts to National Liqueur Day 2014 by sharing Drambuie cocktails from Anthony Caporale National Ambassador for Drambuie below.
If you haven’t tried Drambuie as a whisk(e)y fan, it may have been the world’s first flavored whiskey. We recommend this blend of aged Scotch whisky, heather honey, spices and herbs from a recipe said to date back 1746.
In 2011, the 15 Year old expression of Drambuie was also released. Drambuie 15 is still a liqueur and the flavor is more “whisky forward” as it is made with whiskies aged for at least 15 years.
The Drambuie portfolio also includes The Royal Legacy and The Jacobite Collection.
