The Rob Roy cocktail is similar to a Manhattan, but is made exclusively with Scotch Whisky; the Manhattan is traditionally made with rye, and today also commonly made with Bourbon or Canadian Whisky. The Rob Roy is a cocktail consisting primarily of Whisky and Vermouth, created in 1894 by a bartender at the Waldorf Astoria in Manhattan, New York City. The drink was named in honor of the premiere of Rob Roy, an operetta by composer Reginald De Koven and lyricist Harry B. Smith loosely based upon Scottish folk hero Rob Roy MacGregor.
