This dance was devised in 1976 for Mary Prentice’s birthday (12 th  January) in Ibiza and the recommended tune is “Mary Prentice’s Jig” by Bobby Jack. Glayva is a whisky-based liqueur, first created by the Edinburgh based whisky merchant, Ronald Morrison, in 1947.  The exact details of the recipe remain a closely guarded secret but it is a combination of single malt whisky, tangerines, honey, cinnamon and exotic spices.  The name is derived from the Gaelic phrase 'Glè Mhath', which translates as 'very good'.  The brand is currently owned by whisky giant Whyte & Mackay, and is a multi award winner.
