Cameronbridge 1991 Douglas Laing 30 Year Old

The Cameronbridge distillery was built in 1824 along with the establishment 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.

This was distilled in 1991 and aged in a single cask for 30 years.

Douglas Laing & Co was established in 1948 by Fred Douglas Laing, affectionately known as “FDL.” The company started out as a blending business, but over time their focus shifted towards independently bottlings single malts. Fred died in 1982, leaving the business to his two sons, Stewart and Fred Jr, who eventually carved it up in 2013, with Stewart leaving to establish Hunter Laing. Fred Jr and his daughter Cara now run Douglas Laing, which continues to bottle single malt and has also revived its blending business. Additionally, the company has recently moved into distilling as well, announcing plans to construct the new Clutha distillery in Glasgow, and taking over Strathearn in Perthshire in 2019.
