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 was passed through a series of multinational drinks companies.
The original distillery in Cameronbridge meanwhile went from strength to strength and now, in the ownership of Diageo, is one of the largest distilleries in Europe.
Haig Dimple was named after the unique shape of the Dimple bottle. It was also known as Dimple Pinch in the USA, albeit in a stronger 43%abv expression. Haig Dimple is the upmarket brother of Haig Gold with an age statement of 15 years and a much more malty influence including single Malt Whiskies from Glenkinchie and Linkwood in the blend.
