Paying homage to our historic Cameron Bridge Distillery, this libation is utterly quaffable and refreshing with a sense of intrigue. Playing off the rich grain characteristic in Haig Club™, hints of yellow flower and yuzu shine through. The port-pomegranate ice evolves the cocktail with hints of berry and tannin.
