Anyone who is into rare and limited whiskies may want to gear up to lay claim to a 45-year-old single malt about to hit the market.
Highland Park, the world’s most northerly single malt distillery, plans to release 290 bottle of the vintage whisky for retail sale at $6,275 US per bottle.
The new release is the oldest of Highland Park’s Vintage releases, which date to 1964. It will be accompanied by a full strength 40 year old version, priced at $3,764 US.
Highland Park, founded in 1798, matures its peated whiskies in sherry casks to deepen their flavor. It is the only distillery on Orkney. It malts its own barley and uses locally-cut peat.
