Haig is brand of Scotch whisky, originally manufactured by John Haig & Co Ltd. The distillery is now part of the Diageo conglomerate.


The dimpled bottle was introduced in the 1890s. This bottle became so well known and important to the brand that it was registered as a trademark in the US in 1958 by Julius Lunsford.[1]

The family business was subsequently merged into United Distillers and Vintners (UDV) and then into the larger conglomerate Diageo.
