The Higginbottom Whisky Revival

The HAH Whisky Company is breathing new life into the whisky market by reviving the brand name The Higginbottom. From 1878 and with a career spanning 50 years, Henry Albert Higginbottom (whose initials were HAH), was a producer and supplier of fine whiskies. He is credited as being a main provider of whisky – including his Club Blend – to British troops during the Boer war and Great War.

Four limited-edition bottlings complete the HAH whisky company’s launch:
