Haig Club Clubman invites you to make your own rules!

May 21, 2019, Author: Danita Pilley

single grain scotch whiskey produced in partnership with David Beckham, Haig Club Clubman is designed to be different and fashionable with a modern twistwhile at the same time incorporating the bold and progressive spirit of 400 years of heritage from the legendary House of Haig.   

The rules of whiskey have been engrained in us all: a man’s drink that is enjoyed neat or only with a splash of water and never mixedIt’s safe to say that times have changed, and Haig Club Clubman encourages you to make your own rules instead. From the striking blue square bottle to the incredible drinking options that can be created with this versatile liquid Haig offers both those new to whiskey and aficionados a unique take on Scotch. It is not only delicious served neat or sipped over ice – it works perfectly at the heart of a cocktail.  This Scotch pairs well with a wide variety of mixers to complement its ultra-smooth character and its vanilla, toffee, coconut and butterscotch notes.   

We headed over to Diageo HQ where brand ambassador Reggie, The Happiness Agent, created some amazing cocktailsReginald Mthembu (28) is an alcohol, fine beverages, spirits and etiquette expert. As a people’s person Reggie has been able to spread happiness in countries such as Ghana, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Lesotho, Botswana and Mozambique.When it comes to whiskey his motto is: “whiskey is like cologne or perfume – at first it’s overwhelming but if you give it time it makes sense”.
