I have been looking through all our books to find any information about Muirhead :
There is a bit about it in :
Scotch Whisky : Its past and present by David Daiches.
"Macdonald and Muir also blend and export ' Martin's VVO' of three different ages, eitht, twleve and twenty years old; other of their whiskies, perhaps less well known, are Muirhead's (Gold Label, silver Label, and 'Rare Old Maturity' twelve years old) and 'Glen Moray '93', a de luxe whisky described with engaging bravura as ' of tremendous stature, yet full of grace'. (This description comes from the wine list of Charles Muirhead & Sons Ltd., an attractive Edinburgh retail firm owned by Macdonald & Muir. It is so far as I know the only place in the United Kingdom where 'Martin's VVO', virtually un-obtainable in Britain because it is blended almost entirely for export, can sometimes be bought.)"
and The Scotch Whisky Book by Mark Skipworth. "Muirhead's
Adress : Charles Muirhead and Son Ltd.,

We can add that : Macdonald and Muir owns distilleries or brands like ; Highland Queen and Glen Moray.
