Minor Character


Captain John MacKinnon was one of many supporters of Bonnie Prince Charlie who helped him evade capture in the Western Isles, following the Battle of Culloden.

As thanks for this service, it is said that Charles gave MacKinnon the recipe for his personal 'eau de vie', a recipe passed down the MacKinnon line to become the well-known whisky-based liqueur Drambuie.
