Hunter Laing is relatively new independent bottler, but with a long history. This paradox comes as it was previously part of the illustrious Douglas Laing blenders and bottlers, that was first founded in 1949. They spent the first 50 years of their history blending whiskies, producing notable expressions such as “King of Scots” and “77 Scotch”. In 1999, they began to bottle single malts, utilising their enormous stock of casks that had be laid down for many decades. This meant they very quickly established a reputation for excellent quality, releasing vintages of whisky that hadn’t been seen on shop shelves for several years- if at all. Particularly notable amongst these were the 1970s Ardbeg and old Brora.
Such is the size of the Laing stocks, that they have released thousands of different expressions in many different series, such as Old Malt Cask, Provenance, Platinum, Old and Rare- amongst others. In 2013, the sons of the founder (Fred Douglas Laing) split the stocks, with Hunter Laing continuing in the single cask vein, and Douglas Laing (as it remained) focusing more on blends- though with some high quality single cask releases too.
Hunter Laing represents the best of what independent bottling can be- unique single cask releases, truthworthy quality, and rare drams at decent prices.
