Atholl Brose is a Scottish drink made by mixing oatmeal brose, honey, whisky, and sometimes cream.

According to legend, the drink is named after the 1st Earl of Atholl, who quashed a Highland rebellion in 1475 by filling the rebel leader's well with the mixture, making him easily captured.

This recipe, by The Outlander Kitchen yields about 2 cups.


  • 8 oz. Steel-cut or rolled oats
  • 8 oz. Scotch whiskey
  • 2 Tblsp. Honey
  • 4 oz. Table, Light or Single Cream (18% fat)


  1. Soak oats in 2 cups of lukewarm water overnight.
  2. Drain oats in a strainer lined with cheesecloth or muslin.
  3. Squeeze the oats in the cloth to extract all liquid. Discard oats.
  4. Mix 1 cup of strained oat milk with whiskey in a large bowl. Gently whisk in honey, until dissolved. Add cream and stir.
  5. Store, covered, in a pitcher in the fridge for up to 1 week. It gets even better on the 2nd or 3rd day, once flavors have had a chance to meld.
  6. Serve chilled or over ice.
