Glenfiddich owner swallows Drambuie

William Grant & Sons, the Scottish maker of Glenfiddich whisky and Hendrick’s gin has added Drambuie to its portfolio after snapping up the company yesterday for an undisclosed price. Drambuie, a blend of Scotch whisky, spices and honey whose history goes back to 1745, was put up for sale earlier this year by its owners, the MacKinnon family. William Grant said Drambuie was “a natural fit” for its portfolio.
