FAQs

What sets Highland Park whisky apart from other Scotch whiskies?

The distillery itself operates its own floor malting that produces roughly 20% of requirements, with the balance being unpeated malt from Simpson’s maltings from the mainland. Of the malt produced at Highland Park, 50% is peated to a phenol content of 30-40ppm. 

The range of Highland Park whiskies has been an interesting range to observe in recent years, with a deep dive into the Viking history of the region. Releases such as Valfather and Thorfinn shine the light on the region’s past, but the core range of 10-year-old, 12-year-old and the 18, 21, 25, 30 and 40-year-olds are of a particular quality that deserves attention from all whisky lovers. 

Is there a particular ageing process used for Highland Park expressions?

This combination imparts a unique complexity and depth to their whiskies, with the ageing periods varying across different expressions to achieve specific flavour profiles.

Can you describe the flavour profile of Highland Park Whisky?

Lovers of Highland Park whisky will highlight the importance and uniqueness of the peat character in Highland Park.

How does Highland Park incorporate tradition into its whisky-making process?

Highland Park honours tradition by adhering to time-honoured methods like floor malting, slow distillation, and the use of peat cut from Hobbister Moor. These practices, unchanged for centuries, ensure the continuity of the classic Highland Park flavour.

What awards or accolades has Highland Park whisky received?

What makes Highland Park a preferred choice for whisky enthusiasts?
