Rob Roy

The Rob Roy is whisky's answer to a Manhattan cocktail. A seductive mixture of single malt whisky and vermouth, its simplicity allows the whisky to sing, making it the perfect showcase for our lowland single malt. This King's Inch Rob Roy was developed at one of Glasgow's best whisky bars- The Gate- where locals and vistors share drams and stories across for the iconic Barrowlands ballroom.
