Haig Club Scotch
"Haig Whisky is the oldest of all scotch whiskies and may even be the oldest whisky in the world.
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 ownership was passed through a series of multinational drinks companies.
The distillery meanwhile went from strength to strength and now in the ownership of Diageo, is one of the largest distilleries in Europe."
