Haig Gold Label circa 1940s

"By appointment to the late King George V" - 1865 - 1936

John Haig & Co was established in 1824 with the foundation of the Cameronbridge distillery. Already part of a great distilling dynasty, John's uncles had all been distillery owners, and his aunt had been married to John Jameson in Dublin. John Haig & Co were one of the five founding members of DCL in 1877, although were run independently from it until 1919. Best known for its Gold Label and Dimple blends, which were sold all over the world, the firm were also granted the licences to the Glenkinchie, Mannochmore and Glenlossie malt distilleries by DCL, but never bottled their single malts. The company's prominence declined in the latter half of the 20th century, but Diageo have revived the Haig name it in recent times as the single grain brand for the Cameronbridge distillery.

No ABV or exact bottle size stated.
