Highland Park whisky, like island home, is shaped by a wild climate and stormy seas, and by the Vikings who settled here over 1,000 years ago, leaving their mark on the people and the culture.
Named Best Spirit in the World in the Spirit Journal, on two separate occasions, the intense balance of the flavours found owes everything to Highland Park's five traditional keystones of production, honoured for over 220 years. Slow-burning, aromatic peat from Hobbister Moor; hand turned floor maltings, Sherry seasoned European oak casks, cool maturation in our temperate island climate and a long and unhurried harmonisation process. Like their founder, Magnus Eunson, they share their Viking ancestors’ commitment to skilled craftsmanship as well as their proud, independent spirit.
One of the most awarded whiskies of all time, the Highland Park 18 year old demonstrates a clever complex whisky with layers of honeyed sweetness, golden syrup and just a hint of peat smoke. Remarkable and an all-around favourite!
