Quite famous but for a reason the Famous Grouse is the best selling blended whisky in Scotland and is quite popular through out the world for a reason. The history dates back to the 1800's. It was 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. The blend represents great value for money and it also works beautiful in whisky-based cocktails.
