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 Highland Park was released in 2009 as the 1st edition of a series of bottles which were released as a tribute to the skilled craftsmen who built the St Magnus Cathedral in Kirkwall, Orkney.

The bottling marks Earl Magnus, a man unlike any other Orkney Earl, spreading Christianity. The peace loving Magnus was unlike his cousin Haakon who was envious and ambitious, striving for self-glory. Their history is a classic tale of the struggle of good versus evil. Magnus sadly perished at the hands of his brother, who ordered his death.

Earl Magnus is a 15 year old cask strength whisky, which picked up the top prize in its category at the World Whisky Awards on its release.

One of 5976 bottles.
