Clans, Dragonflys and Unicorns... oh my!

June 14, 2019

Scotland has a rich and colourful clan heritage. Each clan ('family' in Gaelic), led by a chief, held power over an area of land and border disputes between these lands could be bloody. Today clan societies around the world form a global Scottish community, celebrating their Scottish legacy and keeping the flame of their heritage burning as far afield as South Africa, New Zealand and of course America and Canada.

Our uniquely Scottish Clan Whisky Angels and water droppers, featuring pewter clan crests and created by skilled craftsmen, make the perfect gift for Highland Games and Clan Gatherings.

The crest on the Whisky Angel below belongs to Clan Macgregor, whose most famous member was the legendary Rob Roy. The Macgregor motto is 'Royal is my Race.' Our beautiful clan glassware products can be tailored to feature any clan crest. 

Our Clan water droppers are the perfect tool for clansmen wanting to share a dram. Just one drop of water can change the composition of your whisky, so if you like a wee drop in your dram, these whisky water droppers are perfect for you.

After the Battle of Culloden in 1746, when the last Jacobite rising came to an end under the control of Bonnie Prince Charlie, the clan system began to break down and the Highland clearances saw thousands of Scots emigrate south and also to the new lands of America and Canada. 

If your clan's crest is not listed on our website, please contact us as we can create whisky water droppers and angels to order.

As interest in Scotlands history grows, greatly assisted by the popularity of shows like Outlander and films like Mary Queen of Scots and the Outlaw King we have created a new range of whisky filled Angels, including our Outlander inspired Dragonfly Angel, and heritage-inspired Unicorn and Stags Head Angels
