Method

Atholl Brose is a traditional Scottish drink dating back to the 15th century – it’s like a traditional Scottish version of Baileys. Watch the Hebridean Baker video for some of the history behind this delicious drink.

  1. Put the porridge oats and whisky into a bowl. Stir, cover, and leave aside for 24 hours so the oats absorb the whisky.
  2. Squeeze the whisky soaked oats through a muslin to squeeze out all of the whisky. You can discard the oats, or use them to make a whisky-flavoured porridge.
  3. Add the heather honey and cream to the whisky, and stir to combine thouroughly.
  4. Enjoy on its own or over ice.

The Atholl Brose should keep for around five days in the fridge, although it’s unlikely to last that long.
