Cameron Bridge Grain Whisky Distillery Bottlings 

Cameron Brig (no age declaration)

Tasting comment: Like other grain whiskies, a lighter spirit than malt, with a fresh taste and an element of smoothness.

 

Haig Club Single Grain Whisky

Haig Club™ is made at Cameronbridge distillery in Scotland. The liquid has been crafted using a unique process that combines grain whisky from three cask types. This creates a fresh, clean style that showcases butterscotch and toffee for an ultra-smooth taste.

 

The blue glass bottle was inspired by the tradition of the distillery blenders using blue tasting glasses, so the spirit can be reviewed on aroma and taste alone. The colour of the closure was inspired by the copper stills that were historically used to distil grain whisky.
