Haig Club Whisky History

Haig Club is a stunning Single Grain Scotch Whisky that boasts a fresh, clean style. As whisky continues to experience a global renaissance, Single Grain Scotch Whisky - for so long lost in the shadows of single malts and blends - represents an exciting new direction in Scotch. The rise of Single Grain Scotch Whisky has been both predicted and eagerly anticipated by spirits experts as the "next big thing in whisky" and we are proud to be at the forefront of this movement.

Our History

The House of Haig is built on nearly 400 years of distilling heritage and can trace its whisky producing roots back to the seventeenth century in Scotland. 

In 1824 John Haig established Scotland's oldest grain distillery, Cameronbridge, and set out to pioneer the art of producing Grain Whisky in continuous Coffey and Stein stills, a process which would go on to provide the foundations for the success of the modern Scotch Whisky industry. The House of Haig's legacy of tradition and excellence continues to underpin the extraordinary HAIG CLUB story.

The inspiration for the name HAIG CLUB can be found in archive materials dating back to the 1920s, in which Haig Whisky was advertised as "The Clubman's Whisky".

THE ICONIC HAIG CLUB BOTTLE

Just like Haig Club whisky, the iconic bottle breaks convention. A perfect blend of style, substance and story, the square bottle takes note from classic whiskies and delivers something startling and unique. The bottle colour pays homage to the traditional blue tasting glasses used by master blenders for generations in order to ensure that liquid is reviewed on aroma and taste alone, and opinion is not swayed by the spirit's colour.  Designed to stand out from the crowd, our striking blue HAIG CLUB bottle combines unique modern styling with a design shaped through four centuries of whisky distilling.The colour of the closure was inspired by the copper stills that were historically used to distil grain whisky. the beautiful bottle asserts itself whether it's proudly placed at home or rubbing shoulders with other whiskies in a bar.

AN EXCITING PARTNERSHIP

Haig Club is produced in partnership with global icon David Beckham and entrepreneur Simon Fuller. This partnership is unique, boasting collaboration, commitment and passion at every level. Both insist on a truly hands-on approach and play a role in everything from business plan development to introducing the brand to new markets around the world. Having been intrigued by the rich heritage and tradition of Scotch, the House of Haig has a historical role in David Beckham's family:  Haig was his grandfather's whisky of choice.
