The most northerly of Scottish whisky distilleries, Highland Park was founded in 1798 and is one of the most highly regarded single malts in the world, the great Michael Jackson calling it, "The greatest all-rounder in the world of whisky." and Paul Pacult awarded it, "The Best Spirit in the World." in 2005. The unique peat of Orkney gives the whisky a distinctive heathery sweetness.
This bottling celebrates the centenary of the battle of Jutland in 1916.
This lot also contains a short magazine and Orcadian newspaper, with photos of the naval ships involved and information about the battle of Jutland. As you can see the magazine's front cover is a copy of the Orkney newspaper's original front page story from Saturday, June the 3rd, 1916.
