Character Goatson
Illuminating and joyous Viking Scotch.

North from the northernmost part of the Scottish mainland, there’s an island among the seventy, where a son of the Vikings established his own illegal Whisky production more than two centuries ago. Today, on the very site where Magnus Euson built his contraband realm, stands the Highland Park distillery, specialized in turning ancient tales into opulent Whiskies. A group of four craftsmen perfected their art in the wilderness of the North and, among many others, created a light golden Spirit to ward off darkness.

The Light, a special expression of only 28 thousand bottles, comes after its rayless counterpart, The Dark. The green bottle contains Scotch from refill American oak barrels and celebrates spring, summer, and rebirth with its lighter and sweeter character. There’s no darkness without the light and this dram shall keep gloom at bay.

Character Dogson
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
