Description

Highland Park is known for being the most Northern Scotch Whisky Distillery in the world. It is situated on the outskirts of the biggest town in Orkney 58.9847°N. It is so far North it is almost in the Arctic circle. To give you an idea, it is on the same latitude as Anchorage, Alaska.

The distillery has been distilling in the same site since 1798 where the founder, Magnus Eunson’s, original illicit still was at High Park.

They smoke their own barley from over 4,000 year old peat which has been cut from the Hobbister Moor only seven miles from the distillery.

This bottling is part of Highland Park's Single Cask Series and was bottled exclusively for Viking Line. Distilled in 2003, this single malt was matured for 13 years in a refill Butt #5734 at the cask strength of 63.1% ABV in 2018.  With only 300 bottles available, this is a limited edition.
