Highland Park

Built: 1794. Current Owner: The Edrington Group. Production Capacity: 2,500,000 litres. House style: Famously desrcibed as an all-rounder, with a little of everything. If you haven't tried it...do! Dating back to 1798, the Northernmost distillery in Scotland, Highland Park, is situated on the outskirts of Kirkwall the capital of Orkney. The distillery's pagoda roofed chimneys are put to good use, as Highland Park cuts its own peat which it uses for malting its barley on the premises. The result of the production process is a malt with a heatheriness and a gentle smokiness that maintains Highland Park as a firm favourite among whisky enthusiasts. Who doesn't like Highland Park?


The nose is surprisingly rich with notes of waxy honey, leather and zest. Hints of the coast creep in with malty barley sweetness and floral honey. The palate is very woody and peppery with an intense body of seaweed and whirls of smoke with a creamy mouth feel and notes of soft over ripe fruits and plenty of wood. The finish is long and crisp with a tangy spice and gentle smoke.
