Highland Park 19 Year Old 1979-1980 / Ferraretto
Highland Park was built by David Robertson all the way back in 1798. The distillery's relationship with blenders, Robertson & Baxter, saw it acquired by Highland Distillers in 1937, who were subsequently bought by Edrington in 1999, who run it today. The modern Highland Park single malt brand was first officially bottled in the 1970s, with the release of an 8 year old age statement, but distillery bottlings first appeared around the 1950s. The look of the brand has changed many times over the years, but its cult following and popularity has never diminished. It remains one of the most recognisable single malts in the world to this day.
This is a very old 1970s bottling of 20 year old Highland Park, produced for Italian importers, Ferraretto. Highland Distillers bottled several Highland Park releases in this style, as well as some Tamdhu using a very similar aesthetic. This bottle shape would later become the hallmark of their new Bunnahabhain single malt brand.
These bottling were produced with a neck tag stating the distillation and bottling year. The 19 year old appears to be an exception to this, but it is known they were bottled between 1979 and 1980.
