Enjoy Your Favorite Scotch in a 'Rusty Nail'

The Rusty Nail is a classic and very popular Scotch cocktail recipe that mixes your favorite whisky with Drambuie for an easy and sophisticated sipper.


Drambuie is a sweet, golden coloured 80-proof liqueur made from malt whisky, honey, herbs, and spices. Produced in Broxburn, West Lothian, Scotland, serve straight, on the rocks, or add to mixed drinks such as the Rusty Nail. The name "Drambuie" may derive from the Scottish Gaelic phrase an dram buidheach, meaning "the drink that satisfies", or possibly an dram buidhe meaning "the red drink". Drambuie received the highest score, a "96-100", in the Wine Enthusiast's 2008 spirit competition.
