A sip of Naked Goose? Maybe not for Kate

THE Duke and Duchess of Cambridge enjoyed a dram as they toured Scotland’s oldest working whisky distillery.

William and Kate officially opened the new-look Famous Grouse Experience visitor attraction, which brings more than 100,000 people to the Glenturret distillery each year.

They were greeted by a bagpiper and crowds waving flags as they arrived at the distillery.

The couple were given a tour by general manager Stuart Cassells and tried a few sips of Scotland’s national drink at the whisky bar.

Master blender Gordon Motion talked them through the different brands, which include Naked Goose and Snow Goose - a variety he described as having a lighter flavour and being more for the ladies.

William chose the Alpha Black first, and commented: “That’s pretty good.”

Kate sipped from a glass of Snow Goose, which she said was “very nice” and suggested that William try “the girly one”.
