Description

A bottle of Highland Park 18 Year Old produced by James Grant & Company. This was bottled for the Italian market and imported by Ferraretto, we estimate in the 1970s.

The history of Highland Park distillery is shrouded in mystery, with even the identity of its founder being disputed. It was built on the remote island of Orkney in 1798, either by farmer David Robertson, or priest turned whisky smuggler Magnus Eunson. The first single malts were released in the 1970s, and the distillery has become known for its use of Orcadian peat to dry the barley (lighter than mainland or Islay peat), and sherry casks for maturation. Recent years have seen Highland Park pay homage to its island heritage, with releases named after local landmarks and Norse gods.

This Highland Park 18 Year Old sold at our online auction for £1,000
