Drambuie Prince Charles Edwards Liqueur

Postby LakenSalyer » Thu Aug 04, 2011 5:20 pm

My great grandmother had a bottle of Prince Charles Edwards Liqueur, she used to work for Harry Lavier's in Cincinatti, Ohio. He was at the inauguration and im guessing this is what the drank there. The bottle has a 1745 date as is unopen, I was just wondering if it would be worth anything?

drambuie always refers to 1745 on its label, as it was the year that bonnie prince charlie (charles edward stuart) led the jacobite rising in scotland in an attempt to regain the throne for the stuart dynasty. legend has it that the drambuie recipe was given to him when he fled to skye after the rising failed.
