In 1475, under a sentence of death, John the last Lord of the Isles fled to the hills. The Earls of Atholl and Crawford rapidly set off in pursuit.
Upon discovering where the fugitive was drawing water, the Earl of Atholl ordered that the well be filled with a mixture of whisky, honey, herbs and oatmeal so as to encourage him to stay put while the reinforcements were brought. Alas the Lord of the Isles was beguiled and 'Atholl Brose' was created.
Today Gordon & MacPhail's award winning Dunkeld Atholl Brose liqueur is made to an ancient recipe, using herbs and only the finest Benromach Speyside Single Malt Whisky, resulting in a smooth delicious liqueur.
