Cameronbridge 1979 Duncan Taylor 29 Year Old
Duncan Taylor was founded in Glasgow in 1938 as a cask broker and trading company. Its modern history began in 2001 when a former Glendronach employee, Euan Shand, purchased the firm and moved it to Huntly in Aberdeenshire, using the impressive cask portfolio it has amassed over the 20th century to become one of the premier independent bottlers in Scotland.
This whisky was distilled in February 1979 and aged in a single cask for 29 years before being bottled in November 2008.
The Cameronbridge distillery was built in 1824 along with the establsihment of John Haig & Co, a legendary blending company with links to both the Haig and Stein distilling dynasties. John Haig always had his finger firmly on the pulse of modernisation, and was one of the first distillers to use patent stills. When Alfred Barnard visited in the 1880s, the distillery operating two Stein patent stills (invented by his cousin, Robert), two coffey stills and pot still for producing Irish style grain. Cameronbridge was one of the founding members of DCL, and despite being run independently from it until 1919, it is today the only fully Diageo-owned grain distillery in Scotland. Although provision of their blends has always been its key purpose (as well as grain neutral spirit for Smirnoff and Gordon's, as of 1998), the distillery has two single grain brands, the historic Cameron Brig, and the recently devised Haig Club.
