Juniper Tree: A Welcome to the Gods

“On the sideboard there always stood before breakfast a bottle of whisky, smuggled, of course, with plenty of camomile flowers, bitter orange-peel, and juniper berries in it – “bitters” we called it – and of this he (Sir Hector Mackenzie) had a wee glass always before we sat down to breakfast, as a fine stomachic.”

Osgood Mackenzie, A Hundred Years in the Highlands, 1921
