About the distillery

Highland Park distillery is a Scotch whisky distillery based in Kirkwall, Orkney. It is the most northerly whisky distillery in Scotland, half a mile farther north than that at Scapa distillery.

Highland Park has performed well at international spirit ratings competitions. Its 25-year single malt scotch, for example, received double gold medals at the 2007 and 2009 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

Other Information

This hand bottled Highland Park 50 Year Old is composed of nine refill casks laid down back in 1968. They were then married together in 2008 in first-fill sherry seasoned oak casks to mature for a further 12 years. In 2020, the whisky was finally filled into a single European oak cask and combined with a portion of the Highland Park 50 Year Old 2018 Release, saved especially for this purpose.

This special box also holds an attractive crystal decanter and a brown leather book providing insight into the development of the whisky.

One of only 274 bottles produced. 

(Please also note the weight of this lot.)
