Highland Park distillery is a Scottish whisky distillery based in Kirkwall on the Orkney Islands. It is the most northerly whisky distillery in Scotland, half a mile farther north than that at Scapa distillery.
All of Highland Park’s malts are lightly peated with local island peat, and matured mostly in ex-sherry casks. This combination of sherry and peat is uncommon, but very interesting. In the 18 year old, the two contrasting elements (fruit-sweet and smokey) were both low-key, and also married very well.
