Announcing the arrival of The Huntsman Blend, a 50-Year-Old Blended Scotch Whisky, created in partnership to Commemorate the 175th anniversary of Huntsman.
We are delighted to announce a new partnership with the iconic bespoke tailor, Huntsman Savile Row, to mark an historic milestone - Huntsman's 175th anniversary. To mark the occasion, the collaboration has developed an exceptional blend and an exquisite tweed cloth, both paying homage to craftsmanship, heritage, and bespoke practices.
To celebrate this momentous occasion, House of Hazelwood has meticulously crafted a limited-edition 50-Year-Old Blended Scotch whisky – The Huntsman Blend - that exemplifies the essence of both brands. Drawing inspiration from Huntsman's rich legacy, House of Hazelwood's masterful whisky makers have artfully combined their finest aged malts to create an extraordinary blend of which there are just 75 bottles available.
In perfect harmony with the whisky, Huntsman, in a mark of mutual creativity, is releasing a House of Hazelwood tweed specially designed by Huntsman’s Head Cutter and Creative Director, Campbell Carey. Inspired by the timeless allure of the Speyside home from the rolling hills, dunnage whisky warehouses and highland flora and fauna which surround the grounds of Hazelwood House. Through Huntsman, the tweed cloth is available for bespoke commission for jackets and suiting and has been realised for the collaborative campaign as a beautiful sports coat, a symbolic celebration of their upcoming 175th Anniversary.
This same tweed is used to create a fabric-bound hip flask to accompany the special edition of The Huntsman Blend 50-Year-Old Blended Scotch Whisky, which is offered in a gift pack, showcased in an engraved wooden box and two generous sample bottles of the whisky – the ideal gift for the collector who likes to both savour and save.
Expressing his enthusiasm about the collaboration, Campbell Carey said,
"As we celebrate Huntsman's 175th anniversary, we are thrilled to partner with House of Hazelwood on this extraordinary venture. By combining our expertise in tailoring with their mastery in whisky-making, we have crafted something truly exceptional that captures the essence of our heritage and showcases our unwavering dedication to craftsmanship."
Jonathan Gibson, director of House of Hazelwood, said:
“It’s a privilege to have partnered with the Huntsman to celebrate their 175th anniversary. Both the tweed cloth and limited-edition blended whisky beautifully showcases the craftmanship which both brands are known for and is an embodiment of our shared commitment to luxury and elegance.”
