Description

Built in 1798, Scotland’s most Northern distillery is set on the site where the infamous illicit distiller, Magnus Eunson’s bothy used to stand. Highland Park continues to malt its own barley using the traditional floor malting method and to kiln dry the ‘green’ malt using peat cut from its own moorlands. One of the few distilleries where you can still see and smell smoke wafting from its pagoda. Cattie Maggie is the underground spring that feeds a former quarry close to Highland Park. The spring and quarry are named after a tinker who lived in the vicinity. The water is pure and very hard, rising through a sedimentary rock of hard sandstone. Initially sweet and fruity with hints of peach and mango. Traces of toasted malt and vanilla develop. With water Rich mulled fruit flavours, with a touch of smokiness and black pepper. Sweet vanilla with green apple and stewed pears. A light smokiness develops. With water Sweet and slightly salty, creamy with red apples and walnut flavours. A subtle cigar ash edge develops.
