Fascinating visit to the Gordon Highlander museum in Aberdeen, sometimes forgotten to visitors to the city. It was intriguing to see a hip flask which saved its owners life from being killed during action in the Boer War. Just wondered if any of whisky was managed to be drank before it totally leaked out! Some whisky connections with William Grant & Sons as noted below, are mentioned in the museum: The Grant Room is named in honour of the famous whisky producers, William Grant & Sons in recognition of their generous sponsorship and support. Many of the Grant family served in The Gordon Highlanders and these links continue with the Museum to this day. William Grant held the rank of Major in The Gordon Highlanders' volunteer battalion in 1897. This remains the official whisky of the regiment. Launched by William Grant - founder of the Glenfiddich distillery - in 1898.
