The Famous Grouse (Whisky)
Product not available in United States
The Famous Grouse presents us the The Famous Grouse 1L (£12.03), a Blended with roots in Scotland showing an alcohol content of 40%. A whisky rated with 4,6 of 5 points according to Uvinum's users. The Whisky is named after the red Grouse, like Scotland's national bird. The Famous Grouse blend include the Glenrothes, Highland Park and The Macallan. Matthew Gloag, the founder of the 200-year-old brand, was a down-to-earth and very modest man from the beginning on. In 1842, Queen Victoria tried the Scottish product on her first visit to the Scottish lands during her reign. In 1905, the company added the adjective 'famous' to the name and so it became "The Famous Grouse", as we know it today. In 1980, the Famous Grouse turned into Scotland's leading whisky brand and in 2010, Perth, the whisky's hometown, received a grouse statue as a gift. You can find the statue in the round abouts looking into the direction of the city.
