Interesting Facts

The Rusty Nail is often cited as the favourite drink of Rat Pack member, Dean Martin.

History of the drink

The history that can be traced back to Scotland in the 1930s or 1940s. The cocktail was invented as a way to enjoy Scotch Whiskey in a more approachable and flavourful way. It was made by combining the spirit with a splash of Drambuie, a sweet and aromatic liqueur made from Scotch Whiskey, honey, herbs and spices.

The Rusty Nail quickly gained popularity in Scotland and became a favourite among locals and tourists alike. Over time, the cocktail made its way to the United States, where it became particularly popular during the 1960s thanks in part to its association with Rat Pack member Dean Martin, who was often seen drinking the cocktail. This newfound popularity helped to cement the cocktail's place in American cocktail culture.
