Stirling Scotch whisky: the secret to longevity?

Grace Jones of Broadway, England recently celebrated her 112th birthday. She earned the title of oldest person in Britain, reports Vinepair.com. “Her secret? A nightly tipple of Scotch whisky.”

Grace tells the website that she was a late-comer to whisky. “I started having a nightly tot of it when I turned 50 so I’ve been having it every night for the last 60 years and I certainly have no intention of stopping now,” Jones, who prefers Famous Grouse, told the website. “My doctor said ‘keep up with the whisky Grace, it’s good for your heart.’”

Famous Grouse is a whisky that is produced not far from Stirling. The Famous Grouse distillery is an absolute treat to visit. It’s about 20 minutes by car, up the A9 north towards Perth, from Stirling, in hilly countryside where you’re bound to run into a famous grouse or two!
