The Glover, first released in 2015, was a blend of Scotch and ultra-rare whisky from the legendary Hanyu distillery in Japan. It honoured the life and legacy of Thomas Blake Glover, the Aberdonian who has intrumental in Japan's modernisation in the second half of the 19th century, and who helped Mitsubishi and the Kirin Group.

Bruce added: "Many people hadn't heard of or appreciated the influence Elizabeth Stuart had in the 17th-century Europe. She was the eldest daughter of James VI of Scotland and I of England, but was also the grandmother of King George I and was the link between the Stuart and Hanovarian thrones.

"But she was herself an extraordinary woman who survived plots, exile and military sieges, and who built up a court in The Hague whose influence stretched across Europe for 40 years or so.
