A spectacular representation of the soul of Highland Park Single Malt.

Highland Park is the most northerly distillery in Scotland on the Orkney Islands. Legend has it that it was founded by Whisky smuggler Magnus Eunson in the late 1700s and that he used his position as a church officer to conceal Whisky beneath the church pulpit. Don’t assume that “Highland Park” means their Whisky is made in the Highland style. In character, their spirit is closer to a midpoint between Lowland and Islay Single Malts. Perhaps the most famous Whisky connoisseur of all time — journalist Michael Jackson — called Highland Park, “The greatest all-rounder in the world of Malt Whisky.”

There’s something special about twelve year old Single Malts. Don’t get us wrong, there are some amazing ten year olds and NAS Whiskies out there. But there is magic threshold at an even dozen years that we really like. Highland Park Viking Honour 12 Year Old is the core Highland Park Single Malt with the flavor profile of sweetness and light peat smoke that it’s famous for with the smoothness that only time can bring. And it’s won more than thirty medals and competition honors itself, lending a ring of truth to its name.

Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
Hobbister Moor is a landmark in Scotland famous for its peat. Because there are no trees on the land to blend in the peat, it has a slightly lighter aroma.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
