The Victorian country house in Linlithgow, West Lothian, belonged to the late Georgina MacKinnon – once the chairwoman of the Drambuie company. She was responsible for the worldwide popularity of the whisky, honey, herb and spice mix and was the only person who knew the original secret recipe, gifted by Bonnie Prince Charlie.

Property site Rightmove describes the property as "Built in 1858, in a grand Scottish baronial style it has been given a category B listing by historic Scotland and features a turreted tower with steep pitched tiled roof, crow stepped gables, mullioned sash windows, crenelated entrance porch and tall chimneys.

"The reception hall, drawing room, dining room and morning room are all impressive rooms steeped in ornate features and opulence."

Drambuie has been produced commercially since 1910, from it's original home on Edinburgh's Union Street before moving to Easter Road after World War II. The recipe was sold to William Grants & Sons for a rumoured £100 million in September 2014.

A nine-bedroomed property owned by the MacKinnon family based at Hillwood House in Edinburgh, had previously sold for £4 million back in February.
