These are three 1954 magazine advertisements for Drambuie, the only cordial made with a Scotch whisky base.
--- Drambuie is a sweet, golden colored 80-proof liqueur made from malt whisky, honey, herbs, and spices. Produced in Broxburn, West Lothian, Scotland, it is served straight, on the rocks, or added to mixed drinks such as the Rusty Nail. The first commercial distribution of Drambuie, in Edinburgh, was in 1910. Only twelve cases were originally sold. In 1916 Drambuie became the first liqueur to be allowed in the cellars of the House of Lords and Drambuie began to ship world-wide to stationed British soldiers. In the 1980s, the producers of Drambuie began to advertise the liqueur. More recently work has been done to strengthen the reputation of the brand after a downturn in popularity and sales.
