product Details

Highland Park 17 Year Old John Rae Arctic Explorer

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 17 year old single malt has been bottled at cask strength and honours the Orkney-born Arctic Explorer, John Rae. It has been aged in a combination of ex-Bourbon, refill and ex-Sherry casks.
