product Details

Highland Park 1968 / Orcadian Vintage 

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.

Following the release of the 1964, 1968 and 1970 Orcadian Vintage, the 1978 followed suit in 2011.

This was a vatting of thirteen casks - hogsheads and butts - which yielded only 893 bottles.
