Atholl Brose Recipe from

Atholl Brose is often made specially at Hogmany and makes a welcome drink and dessert treat. It is very sweet so should only be served in small drams to see in the New Year.
This easy to make Atholl Brose recipe can be made in a few minutes and can be made on the day it is to be drunk but tastes much better if stored for a week.


One bottle of Scotch whisky

10 fl oz / ½ pint of double cream

450g of clear Scottish honey

The whites of six large eggs

One handful of fine ground oatmeal


1. Soak the oatmeal with the Scotch whisky and set aside

2. Beat the egg whites until they become stiff

3. Fold the cream into the egg white mixture

4. Add the honey

5. Blend in the whisky and oatmeal mixture at a slow but steady pace

6. Pour the liquid into some bottles and set aside for one week. Shake each bottle of Atholl Brose each daily
