Highland Park 8 Year Old Bottled 1970s - Ferraretto 75cl / 43%
A bottle of Highland Park 8 Year Old Malt Scotch Whisky from the Islands of Orkney. This was distilled and bottled by James Grant & Co. for Italian importer 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.
