The world’s most northerly whisky distillery founded in 1798 by Magnus Eunson of Gallowhill. Until it was licensed in 1825, its production was illicit and Eunson was assisted in evading the tax exciseman by a church elder who hid the contraband under the pulpit.
Highland Park is one of the few remaining distilleries to use traditional maltings to germinate the barley. The barley is dried using the aromaticheather peat that is cut from the nearby Hobbister Moor.
A spicy nose with a hint of violet overtones. The house style is describedas smoky but this is not the case with this expression. Rather honey, vanilla, custard and banana.
A smooth well balanced malt with a long lasting finish
A smooth well balanced malt with honey, vanilla essences and dry spices. Long lasting and fresh.
