Haig’s Dimple Johannesburg 1986 Decanter 12 years

This bottle commemorates the centenary of Johannesburg, Alpha City of South Africa and home to more than 15 million people. The City was founded in 1886 when someone shouted “Gold!” and the hasn’t stopped since then. Like Dimple.

Dimple is a superior brand of blended Whisky from the Famous House of Haig’s, and is a wonderfully malty Whisky.

Kane Mckenzie Haig founded his Stein distillery in the early 1700’s, which has credit as being the first commercial endevour of the strong spirits variety in Scotland.

In 1824 Cameronbridge Distillery was built, and Haig’s real heartbeat began. The first Distillery to use the new fangled Coffee Stills,  this giant would eventually go on to produce grain for almost every blend that we drink. From Johnnie Walker to Buchanan’s there is some Cameronbridge in all of them today.

The three shaped “dimple” bottle was introduced in late 1890 and proved a worthy addition to the Haig’s stable.

Haig’s brand most recently bought some renown with the Beckham, who has been bending things their way again, but Dimple has been there all along. In great Liquor Stores the world over, since 1890.
