    I've been enjoying a tin of Drucquer and Sons "Blairgowrie"..... Wonderful stuff. Never got to go to the legendary shop. So what is the correct way to pronounce this? Drukker? Drew-ker? Dru-kwa?..... Thanks-- this question pops in my head every time I smoke a bowl of this.............. .......... I know.

    I guess Shane Ireland has the right answer since he is in the business:

    It's pronounced D 'n' S. Just like Guns and Roses is pronounced.

    I bet Greg Pease knows!

    "Drew-ker" would be consistent with the French-looking name. (though it could have been anglicized) Brit: " Drukkah"

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    Yea, that's what I was thinking too.......... maybe Greg will chime in.......... I was calling it Drucker, as in "trucker", but I'm thinking JGuss is probably right on this one..... "Drew-ker"

    I just call it awesome. The Prince’s Blend is my favorite of what I’ve sampled so far.

    Make aromatics great again.

    I think I've heard it pronounced "drukkers" by Greg. Could be mistaken of course.

    If it’s pronounced how I’ve heard it, you can make a fine limerick with it. Which incidentally are also from Ireland.

    Drew-Ker? I think that's right.

    This question of pronunciation was raised on Facebook today and I ran across this thread in my attempt to find a definitive answer. I saw that Greg Pease had been unavailable to provide the answer, but having recently corresponded with him, I figured I'd give it another go.

    My question: "So.... is it Drukker or Drooker (as in "boot")? ”

    His answer: "For what it's worth, we always called it 'Drooker' because that's how the family pronounced it."

    It's Drewker or Drooker, but personally I'd soften the 'k' sound a little. Similar to how you'd pronounce the 'ch' in Glenfiddich.

    Maybe that's just the accent coming through though!

    No idea how to pronounce, but I wanted to say that I loved this stuff the first time I had it.

    The English are determined about pronouncing French words with English phonetics, I think perhaps dating back to historical rivalries. The correct French pronunciation I will have to leave to French speakers, since my years of taking and auditing classes and playing tapes and CD's never really took. The U.S. has its own way with pronunciation, like calling Cairo, Illinois Karo like the corn syrup.
