Haig whisky is steeped in history since it was first distilled by John Haig in Cameronbridge Scotland in 1824. From these humble beginnings, Haig Whisky quickly rose to become one of the most successful and popular Scotch whiskies in the world before falling into decline some 30 years ago as it left the Haig family ownership and was passed through a series of multinational drinks companies.
The Cameronbridge distillery meanwhile went from strength to strength and now, in the ownership of Diageo, is one of the largest distilleries in Europe.
In 2014, Diageo launched a new Haig whisky to add to the existing old guard whisky stable of Haig Gold Label, Haig Dimple and Haig Pinch blended scotch whiskies. Haig Club, in its distinctive square blue bottle and luxury packaging, is a smooth, versatile and easy drinking single grain scotch whisky aimed at converting a new generation of younger drinker over to the wonderful world of Scotch Single Grain Whisky. Diageo say that it’s a blend of three grain whiskies each of which have been matured in different types of casks.
