Drambuie Collection The Drambuie Collection is one of the finest of its type in existence. It has never been toured outside of the UK until 2003.
Today the significance of "Bonnie Prince Charlie" has been reduced to an emblem on a shortbread tin. But in 18th century Europe, the life of the Scottish Prince Charles Edward Stuart propelled a movement and rebellion that inspired myths, political upheaval, and some of the most exquisite works of art and craft of the period.
According to exhibition curator, Robin Nicholson, "These works demonstrate how the Jacobites, in creating an abiding tartan-clad iconography, invented a myth so large that it came to eclipse the reality of their adored leader, 'Bonnie Prince Charlie' while he was still alive."
