    Its called 'Horseguards Dew' and is an old Guards Regiment tradition distilled using the 'Grain Return' method.

    Only 30% of oats and barley fed to horses is actually digested. So the thrifty horsey boys sift out the remainder with their hands, boil it up, add yeast and a dash of saddle soap to soften the water, then they distill it into whiskey.

    All profit goes to 'The Horsenuts Appeal' (Patron - HRH The Princess Royal) and is used to buy wooly socks for the troopers and sheepskin nosebands for their horses.

    Hope this helps?
