One of the world's most popular blends, Famous Grouse is a very nicely balanced, malty blend which was first made in 1896. Created by Matthew Gloag's company after he was asked to supply wines for a royal banquet with Queen Victoria in attendance. His son, William, perfected a blend named The Grouse, renaming it The Famous Grouse in 1905. Around eighty years later, the company was awarded a Royal Warrant. A generously malty style, very drinkable, the blend also works beautiful in whisky-based cocktails. Delicious.
