Haig Club Single Grain Scotch Whisky
Today, the Haig family legacy lives on at the Cameronbridge Distillery, where single grain whisky is still produced according to the continuous production techniques — through Coffey and Stein stills — pioneered by John Haig many centuries ago. Much like single malt whisky, single grain whisky must adhere to a strict set of standards, including being produced at a single distillery and aged for a minimum of three years in oak barrels.
Haig Club Single Grain Whisky is made from a mash of 10% barley and 90% wheat, and is distilled through column stills at the Cameronbridge Distillery. Once distilled, the whisky is aged for a minimum of three years in various types of casks, including first-fill ex-bourbon barrels, refill ex-bourbon barrels, refill hogshead casks and rejuvenated casks, which are casks that are stripped on the interior and re-charred before use.
Bottled at 80 proof, Haig Club Single Grain Whisky represents a unique new way of approaching single grain whisky, and counts David Beckham and Simon Fuller as its ambassadors. The whisky was recently released in the United States.
