That’s dram good: 12 photos of Prince Charles on distillery tours

Our story begins in 2013, with a royal visit to Scotch producer Glen Grant.

Charles was in Rothes, Scotland, to officially open a biomass plant and a whisky bottling centre at the 173-year-old distiller, which was bought by Campari in 2005.

The Prince, donning a tweet blazer and kilt made by Stuart Hunting, unveiled a plaque on a pyramid of whisky barrels outside the distillery and asked: “Is this the emergency supply?”

It was the first time a royal had visited the distillery in 50 years. He was, of course, presented with a bottle to take home.
