Orkney based distillery, Highland Park, has unveiled its newest whisky edition a 50 Year Old single malt Scotch Whisky, which is only the third 50 year old created in the distillery’s 223 year history.
This new Highland Park 50 Year Old edition has been carefully selected from nine refill casks, originally laid down in 1968, married together in 2008 then reracked into a handful of the finest first-fill sherry seasoned oak casks. Then, after a further 12 years of maturation, one of these limited casks was selected and married with a small quantity of the whisky from the last 50 Year Old released by the distillery.
Presented in a hand-made wooden box, crafted from walnut by Scottish Master Craftsman, John Galvin, the whisky is encased in an embossed heavy-weight glass bottle featuring a design inspired by the Norse heritage of the distiller’s Orkney island home, which dates back over 1200 years.
Embellished in intricately decorated metal, encasing a hand-crafted crystal decanter and leather-bound book detailing the story of the 50 Year Old whisky completes the presentation of this incredible new whisky.
The new Highland Park 50 Year Old will be available from specialist retailers globally and a limited number are available from the distillery and their online shop.
