We are the product of our people, our location and our history. Our whisky, like our island home, is shaped by a wild climate and stormy seas, and by the Vikings who settled here over 1,000 years ago, leaving their mark on our people and our culture. There are people, near and far, whose passion and skill ensures that they – and our whisky – stand apart.
Highland Park Full Volume Single Malt Scotch Whisky is a perfect illustration of the fine skills of our Master Whisky Maker, ensuring that every individual wave of flavor finds its perfect place in the beautifully harmonised final spirit. For musicians, amps and equalisers maintain critical balance at high volume by fine-tuning musical frequencies – at Highland Park, our Master Whisky Maker, Gordon Motion, does a similar job. Highland Park Full Volume Single Malt Scotch Whisky was created using 100% ex-bourbon casks rather than our traditional sherry-seasoned ones. During 1999, a combination of 481 casks – 200 litre barrels and 250 litre hogsheads – were filled at strengths of between 63.6% and 63.7%. The whisky was filtered at just over 4C and delivers flavors of creamy vanilla and sweet citrus fruits from the bourbon casks, balanced by Highland Park’s characteristic aromatic smokiness.
