Hunting Squire Profile
Blended Scotch Whisky
This 8-year-old blended Scotch whisky was bottled for a time during the 1980s for the Hunting Squire Whisky Company. The brand was supposedly designed to appeal to the outdoorsy type, what with its depiction of an English foxhunter in the saddle, his noble steed mid-gallop. Sadly the constituent whiskies in the bottle are unknown.
Hunting Squire History
Hunting Squire first appeared in the late 1970s and lasted less than 20 years before its owner finally gave up and the company was dissolved. By 1988 the company was threatened with being struck off, a procedure which was finally carried out in 1996.
In the intervening years the brand struggled to succeed during what was a period of oversupply for the Scotch industry.
