Haig's Gold Label Circa 1930s
A very old bottle of Haig's Gold Label, bottled after the death of George V in January 1936 but before the reissuing of Royal Warrants by either Edward VIII - who ascended the throne at his father's passing and abdicated 11th of December 1936.
This was bottled for N.A.A.F.I. which were services provided to the British military.
The Haig family had a long history of distilling going back as far as the 15th Century. Since 1824 when Cameronbridge distillery was opened by John Haig, Haig has been a big brand in the whisky world. As part of a distilling dynasty John Haig became important in the regulation of Whisky production and was a spokesman for the industry. Although the brand began to shrink in the 1970s, in the last year it has seen a healthy revival with the help of Mr Posh Spice David Beckham.
