    Highland Park Single Malt Whisky

    Located in Orkney, Highland Park is one of the most remote whisky distilleries in the world. It also claims to be one of the oldest distilleries still functioning today, but this is often disputed. The distillery claims to have been in existence since 1798, but it was not officially licensed until 1826. Either way, Highland Park are still committed to the traditional processes of distilling which they have used for almost 200 years and have continued to create excellent whisky to this day. Like many distilleries, Highland Park went through a number of ownership changes in the early days. It wasn’t until 1876 when it was taken over by Stuart and Mackay that the brand began to find real success through international sales. It was then purchased by James Grant (of Glenlivet fame) in 1895 and he soon upgraded the facilities to include 4 stills. From this point onward the distillery flourished; it was later purchased by Highland Distillers in 1937 and they were subsequently absorbed by current owners Edrington Group & W.Grant & Sons in 1999.

    Orkney is a unique environment for producing whisky and the terroir contributes notably to the distinctive style of Highland Park. Special heathered peat is drawn from the moors by the distillery and fresh water from the surrounding springs. The salty sea air and the temperate winds of the island make for a whisky which matures quite unlike any other. Highland Park has gained notoriety among whisky connoisseurs, having been declared as one of the best whiskies in the world on several occasions; the 21 year old expressions was awarded the title at the World Whiskies Awards 2009 and the 25 year old expression won the Ultimate Spirit award in 2013.
