Our oldest and most prestigious release to date, this remarkable single malt whisky has been matured for over 50 years, the result represent the pinnacle of the five key stones in our whisky production. Distilled in 1960, the 50 year old has been carefully constructed from just five casks of whisky, then additional rested to ensure perfect balance and consistency, a process we call cask-harmonisation.
Highland Park 50 Year Old has been bottled at 44.8% abv to ensure the full impact of the rich, complex flavours, which are the result of such a lengthy maturation, adding vibrancy on the palate, which is rare in a single malt whisky of this age.
Inspired by the elemental forces of Orkney, each bottle is hand-crafted from sterling silver and designed by Maeve Gillies, an internationally-renowned Scottish jewellery designer based in New York. Her design for Highland Park 50 Year Old celebrates Orkney- in particular the influence of the sea, wild weather and the passage of time.
