How Old Is Your Haig Whisky? Expert Guide to Aging Haig

Much of the mail that I receive here at HaigWhisky.com is related to people from all over the world who have found or been bequeathed an old bottle of Haig Whisky and Haig Dimple and Haig Pinch in particular.

When you remember that up to about 40 years ago, Haig Whisky was one of the most popular Scotch whiskies in the world it goes some way to explaining why so many bottles of Haig were given as special presents or gifts for significant birthdays or family events. It was probably their sentimental value that prevented them from being opened and consumed. You must also remember that we now live in a consumer age where no one thinks twice about ordering a bottle or two of Scotch Whisky online or buying Scotch in your local store. But 40 to 100 years ago, a bottle of Scotch was a once a year purchase and quite unusual and special for the average family. This, I believe is why so many old bottles have still survived unopened.

As you may have noticed from my own blog articles, I’m a firm believer that whisky is there to be drunk rather than stored. My advice always is that if you find yourself in possession of a very special bottle of whisky drink it over a year or so on special occasions and then keep the empty bottle as a nice reminder of the original gift and story and also the special occasions when you drank really special whisky.

Is Old Haig Whisky Safe to Drink?

I’m afraid that I can’t answer that as there are so many variables. Contrary to popular belief, Whisky (unlike wine) does not age in the bottle. Whisky bottles should be stored vertically in order to minimize loss of spirit through seepage or evaporation. Once the seal has been broken and the cork or cap opened, you never have as good a seal again. Part used bottles also have more of the whisky in contact with air which leads to increased evaporation and also oxidisation which will give the whisky a bitter or often metallic taste. Bottle of whisky stored unopened for more than 15 years do deteriorate in quality. Are they safe to drink? Probably yes, but they may not taste nice. The risk is yours. Also beware that whisky bottles left in old attics or cellars may have been subject to contamination by mice, rates etc. which could pose a significant health hazard. As always, use common sense.

How Much is Your Bottle of Haig Whisky Worth?

This is the question I am most asked and 9 times out of 10, I’m afraid the results are disappointing. A bottle of 1940’s Haig Dimple or Pinch with good provenance and with bottle, contents and packaging in good condition may fetch £200 in from a dealer. But! the dealer will only offer you £50 to £80. add in shipping costs and your time and …. Well, no one (usually) gets rich from old bottles of Haig Whisky.Empty bottles and pewter decanters will generally make from £10 to £50.

How Old is Your Bottle of Haig Whisky?

Having said all that, I’ve decided to spend some time developing a simple user guide to working out how old your old bottle of Haig Whisky might be. I’ll edit and refine this article over the next few months and would also welcome feedback from other Scotch and Haig experts using the comments feature below. You can also check out the infographic below to get an idea of how old your Haig whisky bottle is. Here goes!

What Kind of Haig Whisky have you got?

Generally speaking there are three types of Haig Whisky. Haig Gold Blended Whisky is in a normal shaped bottle whereas Haig Dimple and it’s American Market sister Haig Pinch are in the three sided bottles with dimples or dents in each of the three faces.

Guide to Aging Haig

Below you’ll see some of the elements of different Haig bottles that can be used to help give a better idea of the age of your Haig bottle. This guide to aging Haig Whisky isn’t definitive but should serve as a good starting point for you and will be added to in time.

  • The Royal Coat of Arms – All bottles of Haig will carry a representation of the British Royal Family Coat of Arms and will mention the King or Queen reigning at time of bottling. This will give you a general idea of the age.
  • The Foil Cap – Foil Caps were in Gold after 1957. Before then they were in White. Bottles from 1943 to 1946 had no foil caps because all aluminium was required for the war effort and even after the war, the new foil caps were shorter than before.
  • Metal Twist caps – Metal Twist Caps were introduced to Haig Gold bottles in the 1960’s and were replaced with plastic caps in the 1970’s.
  • Spring Cap – The famous spring cap associated with Haig Dimple (first made in 1897) was introduced in the 1920’s.
  • Stamped/Molded Bottle – If the bottle has “Dimple” or “Pinch” stamped or molded into the glass of the bottle than it was bottled before 1954.
  • If the label has both Edinburgh and Markinch mentioned then you may have an unusual bottle! Haig Whisky became a Limited company in 1894 with registered offices in Edinburgh. With expansion of the Markinch production facility after World War 2, the registered offices were moved there in 1952 and thereafter, bottles carried just Markinch on the label. Haig Whisky bottled during the transition period during the build of the new HQ between 1950 and late 1952 carried both place names.
  • And finally, if you bottle comes with a box, it probably dates from after the late 1920 as prior to this Haig Whisky bottles were shipped in straw packed wooden boxes.

    Stuart, a friend found this bottle while cleaning out an old basement and knowing that I drink Scotch, he gave it to me. I am curious as to it’s age and thought it would be wise to find out if it had any real value before I drank it since it seems a waste to leave it in the bottle. I do notice that it has lost about 2 inches of volume. I assume this is from evaporation.
    I’ve attached a picture of the bottle and will follow with a close-up of the neck. From your examples in your “How Old” info, I would guess that this is a pre-war vintage but wanted to ask your opinion as well as your advice about any value. Obviously the labeling is not in perfect condition.
    Thank You

    This is really a nice resource so first, thank you.

    I just found this unopened bottle and am wondering if I can get some better help dating it. Based on the article and that this only has “Edinburgh” on the bottle I know this is pre 1952. Also, I see the screw top was “introduced” in the 1920s, but does that mean this is a 1920s bottle or could it be from later? If anyone has a more exact dating of this I would appreciate it. Would like to know what we are going to drink before we do. Thanks.

    Same question as most on here! (sorry).

    My father passed away a few years ago and I found this bottle of Haig whiskey. I appreciate it is a good brand, but before I open it, I wondered if you could tell me any more – unfortunately it seems to have lost its label.

    I believe its Gold Label, but have not idea of age, or value.

    On the base of the bottle are the markings “SA293 K 12 UOB”

    Shall I just open it and see what it tastes like?

    Have an unopened bottle of Haig &Haig, it has the spring cap, Markinch,and the coat of arms ( no mention of King or Queen) under whose reign it was bottled, unless the symbols on the coat of arms tell. I know my grandfather was stationed in England during WW2, I’m guessing that he brought it back, along with a bottle of Kings Ransom (still in soft cardboard box), research yet to be done on it

    I have an unopened bottle of Haig Dimple marked “Old Blended Scotch Whisky”. Short gold metallic covering (pewter?) with clip visible at the side. States by appointment to H M King George VI. Marked 70% proof and “Made in Scotland”. The bottom of the bottle states “Haig’s” with various other letters and numbers – A660; R8; UGB.
    Seems from the description guide you give that it may be post 1957 because of the gold foil, however by appointment to King George VI provides a conflict.
    May have been for export if that makes a difference. I can send pictures if that helps. I would greatly appreciate your comments as to age. Thank you – James

    I was given a huge bottle of Haig Blended Scotch Whisky that has been my grandfather’s. He is not with us anymore and I’m trying to figure out when it was bottled, what’s the volume, and what it could be worth.

    First, it’s stated “1×1/2 GALLON BOTTLE” on the box. What’s this in liters?

    I’ve tried hard to find out the age of the bottle but haven’t succeeded. I have uploaded images to https://www.dropbox.com/sh/1z0qwdxwb3yfc5w/AAC7WnQeyXQcfzGgJr4P-_daa?dl=0 so that you can have a look. Under the bottle, there is text that is pinched (if that means standing out).

    What could this be worth?

    Thank you very much in advance.

    I have acquired a old bottle of Haig & Haig Pinch, I have reviewed the information contained on your site, however I am still having an issue in determining the age. I am trying to see if there is any value, or should I just enjoy it…… My husband is from Cork,, and he gets that wild glint in his eye when he sees this bottle. Not to sure, should I give in and crack the seal ? Help, I am running out of hiding places for the bottle. thanks…………………..

    I have an unopened pinch bottle of Haig & Haig Ltd. It has the spring cap & tax stamp seal unbroken. It also has an Illinois tax stamp. The bottle is embossed with Federal law forbids sale or re-use of this bottle just below the neck. The bottom is embossed with the words: Haig & Haig, Edinburgh, Scotland. The words Haig & Haig appear to have been painted in the pinch with a half moon shaped label below with the words: distilled in scotland and bottled in the united kingdom under government supervision. The neck label bears a coat of arms with wording on each side and below it.
    I have had the bottle all my life. It was on a shelf behind our bar in the basement of the house I grew up in. My father gave it to me when I married. He told me to open it when my son got married & drink his health. My son does not drink so the bottle has remained unopened. I will be 73 this month. My brother was born in 1941. There is some confusion whether my father received the bottle when he got married in 1924 or when my brother was born in 1941. The seal says: Somerset Importers, Ltd. New York, N.Y. on one side & has the numbers: 36-8543363 on the other side. The IL. tax stamp has the numbers: 234751 on it. I’d be interested to know how old this bottle actually is & if it has any real value. The level of the whiskey has gone down to half way below the “&” from evaporation as it’s always been stored upright. I’m not real computer literate so pictures are not easy for me. If you think it would help, I could get my granddaughter to help me take some.

    My photos and comments seem to be back. I have another question to add. Notice the silver running down the side of the bottle is not carved with patterns like all other Haig bottles. Why do you think that is? Could this be a prototype? Or unfinished? The current Chief of the St. Andrews Society in Mexico (Scottish Organization), really wants me to donate this to them since it was given to their new Chief, William A. Kennedy in Jan of 1950. I’d really like to know what your opinion of this bottle is. Thanks so much.

The bottom of he bottle has the markings “L SB 676 40 (then a hexagon under this with…) UG”

    I can’t post a picture for some reason but I did post a link to a picture of the bottle on flicker in the website section. I would appreciate a reply, hopefully soon, as I’m eager to drink the whisky but I dont want to without the knowledge to appreciate what I’m drinking.

      Hi Rae,
      As you will see from my guide above, there are several clues in your pictures. It’s a fairly standard bottle of Haig Pinch which means that it was produced for the UK / European market rather than the American market which was serviced by the similar but slightly different Haig Pinch whisky. Firstly, your bottle carries the royal coat of arms on the shoulder which dates it at least after 1953 (Queen Elizabeth) The plastic cap would suggest mid to late 70’s. It was probably produced for the Spanish duty free market. I’m glad to see that your Dad has been dipping into the bottle over the years! Kind regards, Stuart

    Stuart, A friend gave me an opened Dimple bottle with only a small amout removed. She found it in a kitchen cabinet when it was being refurbished. She believes it belonged to her father many years ago. It has a plastic cap. Label around the top is headed “DUTY FREE FOR EXPORTATION ONLY”, and also has the coat of arms (can’t make out name). A curved Dimple lable on one of the sides has a small number – 12397809 – might this be a serial number that could determine the age of the bottle? Thank you, Bill

    Thanks so much for your informative website. My pinch bottle appears to be stamped on the neck “4-1-89” — so can I take this in the literal sense of being tax stamped on April Fool’s Day 1989? Not sure if that is the import date or some other code. Also mine has a carrying handle (I will post a second photo) — is that common?

    Hi Stuart, we have a small boxed unopened bottle of Haig which we think is the 1960’s to 1970’s as it has a screw top. The original price is written in pencil on the top – 4/10 which I’m assuming is 4 shillings & 10 pence so likely to be before decimalisation. This bottle belonged to our dear departed aunt but would love to know for sure when it ages from. No amount content on the bottle, Certainly more than the miniature size we have now a days, perhaps a quarter or an eight size? Again something we would love to know. It carries an excellent slogan – don’t be Vague ask for Haig! Many thanks.

      Not sure if you get a hi-res image and can see that the label reads By Special Appointment to HM The King. But, another label appears to mention Markinch. It’s a spring top with Gold Foil(?). So, I’m confused as to the time frame, based on the clues from the guide above. I have additional photos if needed.

      Hi Mike
      I have one of these bottles to. My father won it in a raffle in 1964. A label was put on it not to be opened until 2nd October 1984, I was born in 63. If you find out how old yours is please let me know

    I have an old Haig pinch bottle (empty) that is decorated with sterling silver. It is stamped 1925, Mexico on the silver. It has Haig on the bottom in raised glass and A66. Haig’s is stamped in white on the side. The top in dented but the cork is intact as is the silver covering the bottle. What is the value of this bottle and how best can I sell it?

    Hello Stuart.
    I’ve had this bottle in a cupboard for the last 9 years since it was discovered in a house under restoration. It’s unopened and as can be seen the label is a bit on the tatty side. Being fond of a tipple myself I’ve never been sure that it is still safe to drink.
    As the bottle has haig moulded into its bottom and the fact that it is in fluid ounces I wondered how old it might be and if it is of any value to a collector.

      Hi Clive, As it says Markinch, it’s post 1952. I’m guessing from the Haig and Haig that it was a US import from Haig and Haig who supplied Haig Pinch to the USA. I’m also guessing post 1954 as it says Haig rather than Dimple or Pinch on the bottle stamp. I’d need to see a picture of the bottle to tell you more. Is it safe to drink. If still sealed, it should be, but apply common sense! Kind regards, Stuart

    Hi, I am hoping that you can help me. My Dad gave me this bottle of Pinch Whiskey. I have tried to research it and can fine similar bottles, but nothing with the exact wording on it. Mine does not say the Proof on it, or the bottle size. As you can see in the picture is says 25 fl Oz.
    Just wonder if you can shed any light on the age of it or any other details.
    As well if does have the wire design around the bottle

    Hi there, I’ve had this bottle of Dimple in the cupboard for quite a while now. Used to belong to a friend’s grandpa who’s since passed away. I think it might be from the 70s – it’s a German import, so I don’t know whether that makes any difference? Any idea how much it might be worth? I attach further images below. Cheers!

    Hi Stuart, I wish that I owned a bottle of this fine scotch, but instead I just received a Haig & Haig Pinch wood crate. Wood you know the approximate date range? It is approximately 18″ wide x 15″ deep and 9″ tall. The printing is in good condition on three sides of the crate.

    I have no need for it, but if it is from around the WWII era, I will keep it. If not, I hate to just throw it out. Is there any value to these crates?

      Hi Bob,
      Haig and Haig were a US Export focused subsidiary of Haig Whisky in Scotland.

      Haig and Haig was established in 1888 by Mr. John Alicius Haig who was a brother of Hugh Veitch Haig, the first chairman of John Haig and Co. John Haig and Co. was the name given to the Haig Whisky “Family” business after it was floated as a limited company registered in Edinburgh in 1894.
      Haig and Haig developed a sizable export business in the USA until it was bought (along with many other small Scotch whiskey companies by the Distilling Company in 1923 during the big Scotch Whisky consolidation at that time. For more info on this see my article on protecting Irish Whiskey at http://irishwhiskey.com/protecting-irish-whiskey/ . The Distillers’ Company then positioned Haig and Haig as a fully owned subsidiary of the Main John Haig and Co in 1925. Unfortunately, the new incarnation of Haig and Haig then remained dormant until 1933 after the introduction of prohibition in the USA. From then on, Haig and Haig regained momentum and continued to market Haig Pinch and Haig Gold Whisky in the USA until the late 1970’s when the Haig Whisky brand fizzled and died after passing from one multinational to another.

    Good afternoon Stuart, I have recently received a bottle of 12 yo Dimple from a friend who received it from his grand father.
    It has a plastic screw cap, but what triggers me is the label “British Customs Certificate of Origin No. 5” which holds a date of “18/2/74”, does this mean this is a 1974 bottle? Can you help me trying to age this bottle, and give some indication of what this would be worth?

      Hi Jean Luc, It look like a fairly standard bottle of Haig Pinch so probably worth about $150 to $300. But see my comments elsewhere in this Haig Whisky Blog. Auction Houses may sell it for $300 but the y may only offer you $50 to $100. Kind regards, Stuart

    I recently deceased relative had in his basement a bottle of Haig Pinch that bears the brands “not for re-sale” and “for U.S. forces only”. It has a gold seal, and was packed in a cardboard box that reads “Haig &Haig”. Was stored with wines dating to 1959. Any idea how this came to be or when?

      Stuart McNamara

      Hi Todd, The Gold seal would indicate post 1957. It was probably bought in a US Forces PX Shop. US Forces stationed abroad would have been able to buy Tax Free or Duty Free Spirits at knock down prices. That’s why resale was forbidden. Kind regards, Stuart

    Hi Stuart,
    Thank you for taking your time to help everyone out.
    I recently bought a bottle of Haig’s (in Australia) with very limited info on it. I suspect there has been some label of sorts that must have fallen off.
    Itsa triangular bottle and it just says HAIG’S. Thats it.
    It has a spring cap and it is moulded. Underneath the stamp reads A660 R3 HAIG’S U66.
    Would you have any idea what type og Haig’s it is, age and yout opinion on price?

      Hi Johan,
      It looks like a bottle of Haig Dimple minus the paper labels. The Gold spring cap would suggest that it dates from post 1957. The bottle markings are difficult to trace and rarely refer to a year. But I would guess from the design of the painted lettering that it dates from 1957 to the early 1960’s when the spring caps were replaced with metal screw caps

      The approximate sale price of a perfect bottle with box and labels intact as in the photo that I have attached would be in the region of €200 to €250. Auction houses however will generally only offer you 20% to 30% of the final sale price.

      Kind regards,

      Hi, The photo is quite small so in general, It looks like a bottle of Haig Pinch.
      Haig and Haig were an offshoot company of Haig Whisky Scotland who looked after sales of Haig whisky in the USA. Haig Pinch was the US export version of Haig Dimple. Does the bottle have any moldings in the glass referring to Federal Law and Resale?

    Hi Folks, I know that many of you often ask me to engage in email correspondence about your old bottles of Haig Whisky. You also ask can you email me photos of your old Haig bottles. You may have wondered why I try to keep all correspondence about old Haig bottles here on the site. The reason is that this website is a non commercial hobby site and I have a very busy real life away from here which means I am often traveling abroad and away from home for long periods. It may also explain why I sometimes don’t get to answer all the questions that are asked here. I don’t share my private email address as I would be swamped with requests. If all questions are answered here, it means that every one benefits from the answers and they become a publicly searchable database for old Haig Whisky.
    I am now experimenting with a photo upload feature for the posting of comments on the site. This is just a trial, but we’ll see how it goes! So feel free now to upload one photo per comment! Kind regards, Stuart

    Thank you for your information. There is no white lettering that says pinch on it. It does have a silver almost cone shaped top that holds the cork.

We’re there other manufacturers of a similar bottle during that time period?

    • 162
      Stuart McNamara

      Hi Colin, The White Foil would suggest Pre 1957 and not the war years of 1940 to 45 as foil discontinued to save aluminum for the war effort.

      But, as you will see from my Haig Whisky Age Guide above, the only bottles to carry both Edinburgh and Markinch on the labels were those produced by Haig Whisky between 1950 and 1952 which were the transition years as they moved head office from Edinburgh to Markinch. These are now quite rare and collectible bottles of Haig Whisky and can be worth anywhere from £300 to £1,000 and more if you meet the right Haig Whisky collector. Kind regards, Stuart

    Born in Kells, Meath, Ireland and Married in NY in 1966. Received a bottle of Haig and Haig from Best man. He claimed got it from his Father who claimed it is pre prohibition. It is 12 year old in a 3 sided bottle with royal seal without any monarch name. Blue shield with a small red devil(?) on top with 2 horses. It has a metal cap with a release and covered with a revenue seal. there is also a beverage stamp on the dimpled bottle. It is contained in a 3 sided cardboard box with the distributor name Somerset Importers ,Madison Av., New York. The picture on the outside of the box appears to show a thin wire encasement with a seal that reads pull. However none appears on the bottle now. The Revenue seal is unbroken but it must have leaked some as it is stained and the bottle is only 80% full
    Next year we will renew our vows on the 50th anniversary of a great marriage and it may be time to break the seal

      Stuart McNamara

      Hi Sean, What a great story. Thank you so much for sharing.

      I know Kells well. A great Historical Town.

      The whiskey will not have aged in the bottle so it is still 12 Year old whisky.

      Old whiskey like this should always be stored vertically to avoid seepage.

      Whisky corks are stoppers while wine corks are seals. That’s why Wine is stored on its side and why whisky can seep if laid down on it’s side.

      Is it safe to drink? It should be once it has not been contaminated by external sources.

      Common sense is the name of the game.

      As always, my advice is to drink and enjoy rather than sell.

      Old Haig Whisky Bottles like this may fetch a few hundred dollars but the memories of sharing such a rare whisky on a special family occasion will be priceless.

      And the empty or half empty Haig Whisky bottle will become a much loved family keepsake, all the more so when you add the experience of opening and drinking it to the bottles history.

      Have a great anniversary Sean!

      Kind regards,

      Stuart

It has the Markinch-labeled gold foil spring cap, but the Royal Coat of Arms is displayed with no mention of a reigning king or queen. Instead, there is a statement reading “Distilled in Scotland and Bottled in the United Kingdom under government supervision”. The Coat of Arms has a mostly blue-colored shield, with a white X across the shield. Hopefully this is enough info to help identify the bottle’s approximate age?

      Hi Tony, It’s a miniature whisky that would have been served on a British European Airways (BEA) flight sometime between 1946 and 1974 when BEA and BOAC became part of British Airways . BEA flew mainly to Europe, North Africa and the Middle East, while BOAC flew long hall to the US, South America, Asia and Australia etc. The very first Concordes were actually BOAC. BEA flew iconic British aircraft such as the Viscount, BAC 1-11 and the Trident. BEA. They had an unusual battle with Pan Am in the late 60’s on their Berlin route. Pan Am were out gunning BEA with faster Boeing 727 jets which had greatly shortened journey times with drinks and snacks rather than full meals. BEA responded by running more frequent flights on their slower Viscount turbo prop aircraft which had fewer seats, more leg room and full silver service meals. It was the fore runner of the Ryanair model but in reverse! I would guess therefore that your bottle most likely dates from the late 60’s before the introduction of the faster BEA Trident jets to compete with the 727. As a whisky bottle it’s of little value. Probably of more (but I would guess still limited) value to an airline memorabilia collector. I’d reckon a couple of pounds at most. Kind regards, Stuart

    Haig & Haig was my Dad’s favorite scotch. He lived to the ripe old age of 92 and I remember going through items in his room with
    my older brother as we determined what to do with what was there and coming across an empty Pinch bottle. I looked for this brand off an on over the years but never finding a bottle, but to be truthful not looking too hard. I believe I saw this brand mentioned in “Whisky Advocate” magazine recently as well. Yesterday I came across a bottle in a new-to-me liquor store. There it was, dusty, all by itself on a top shelf way above eye level. The minute I saw it I claimed it and had the clerk dust it off. I have no idea how old it is. It has the maroon seal at the top with the words “The Dimple Pinch” and the words Diageo with a 1.800 number. Whatever. I enjoyed your information on this website very much. You brought home many fine memories. I will be sure to advise my older brother of my “Find” and at some proper point in time open the bottle with him and share some memories.

    I am just trying to get a date on a bottle… I will try to get a picture when I can. It looks like this bottle (http://natedsanders.com/incredibly-rare-and-unique-john-f-kennedy-owned-bot-lot25278.aspx) except no red sticker in the dimple. (and not given to a president…) 😛
    I still have the original box.
    The bottle has a spring cap wrapped in a gold foil. The foil is wrapped by a typed label saying “The whisky contained in this bottle is the product of the finest distilleries in Scotland specially selected HAIG & HAIG LTD.” The only other label is the one with the coat of arms. It is a blue shield with a white “X”, framed by upright white horses. Above the shield is a small ribbon with a red animal of some kind above it. There are no mentions of a King or Queen. It is the same image as the coat of arms above the “FIVE STAR” in your Markinch & EdinBurgh circular picture above.
    The left of the label has (separate lines in new quotes) “Contents 26 1/2 ozs” followed by “PINCH” “Finest” “Blended” “Scots Whisky”.
    The right of the label has “Made in Scotland” “Blended and Bottled by” “Haig & Haig Ltd.” “MARKINCH” “SCOTLAND”.
    The bottom of that label says “DISTILLED, BLENDED, AND BOTTLED IN SCOTLAND”
    The bottle has White lettering on the front dimple only, “HAIG & HAIG” above and “PINCH” below.
    The bottom of the bottle has 3 lines of text molded: the first is “14”, then HAIG & HAIG LTD.” then “SCOTLAND”
    A wire mesh surrounds the bottle.

    Any help dating this bottle would be appreciated.

      Hi Tron, The Markinch label will date it as after 1952 and judging from the information you have given, it sounds like a fairly standard bottle of Haig Pinch from the mid 1960’s. These can make £200 – £300 on whisky sales sites. However, the price the original seller makes by selling on these sites is often less than 50% of this. Kind regards, Stuart

    Hi Stuart, I have come across an old bottle of Dimple and just wanted to know if you could put a value on it. To help you it is 70% proof 26 2/3 fluid ozs.

      Hi Terry, Great to hear from you. While we don’t value old Haig Whiskey bottles per se, I’m happy to offer an opinion when able. It sounds like a normal bottle of reasonably modern Haig Dimple blended Scotch whisky. Does the label mention a 15 Year age statement? These are typically only making about £50 on whisky sales and auction sites, so don’t order a new Jaguar on the strength of it! They are appreciating steadily as interest is renewed in Old Haig Dimple and Haig Pinch whisky thanks to TV mentions for Haig Whisky and other old Scotch whiskies on American TV shows such as Breaking Bad and Mad Men. The new Haig Club Whisky being plugged by David Beckham is also renewing interest in older Haig Whisky variants. My advice would be to hold onto it for a year or so and see what happens.

      Hi Adrian, Then it is post 1952. I’ve seen these for sale on the likes of Master of Malt and the Whisky Exchange for about £50. However, they may only have paid someone like yourself half of this price as they also have to make a profit when they sell it.

      You could also put it up on ebay etc and see if it catches the attention of a collector. If it was mine, I’d keep it as the value will only go up in time. But unfortunately, it’s unlikely to make you millions! ;>) Hope this helps! Kind regards, Stuart

      Hi Adrian, Nice to hear from you! Difficult to say based on just the information you supplied. Have you seen my blog post (above) on old Haig Dimple and Haig Pinch Whiskey? The clues will be in the Royal Coat of Arms which will date it to a monarch’s reign, the colour of the foil cap and whether the label mentions Edinburgh, Markinch or both. Hope this helps! If you like, post a link here to a photo on photo bucket etc.Kind regards, Stuart

    Hi Joe, I’m guessing without seeing a picture that it’s probably from the mid to late 50’s and depending on condition worth just about $50. Does it have a white foil cap? Kind regards, Stuart

    My unopened bottle does have a stamp on the bottom, and on the front label it has an 8 digit number. ? Would the number help aging the bottle?
