AA Muirhead History

Not to be confused with Charles Muirhead of Muirhead’s Blue Seal fame, Andrew A. Muirhead was based in Milnathort in Kinross-shire. The company’s whisky labels depicted stunning Scottish scenery in a watercolour style, making them easily recognisable. In particular, the Tally Ho blend features an early foxhunting scene with riders and hounds. In addition to Scotch whisky, A. A. Muirhead also bottled a Jamaican rum.
