Highland Park pairs whisky with music - 23rd September, 2013

Highland Park pairs whisky with music - 23rd September, 2013Highland Park single malt whisky, distributed by Maxxium UK, has embarked on an exciting new partnership with Linn to bring award-winning whisky together with the best music systems in the world, celebrating 40 years of exceptional music performance at home.  

In 1973 Linn launched the Sondek LP12 turntable, a product which went on to change the world of hi-fi forever. To mark this anniversary, the makers of the best sound systems in the world have joined forces with Highland Park, the makers of the ‘best spirit in the world’ ¹, to stimulate the senses of music and whisky lovers alike.

United by their Scottish roots and dedication to exceptional quality, the globally renowned companies have combined their expertise and craftsmanship to create a limited edition Sondek LP12 turntable. This collaboration features Linn’s highest performance turntable which has been encased in a beautiful wood plinth, crafted from the solid oak casks used to mature Highland Park whisky. A special bottling of Highland Park 40 year old whisky has been designed exclusively to be paired with the turntable.

With just forty Limited Edition Highland Park and Linn Sondek LP12 Turntables available worldwide, they are expected to sell out quickly and become a highly collectible item.  The turntables can be ordered through Linn’s global network of specialist retailers, priced at £25,000.

Highland Park is crafted at one of the oldest single malt distilleries in Scotland, situated on the remote islands of Orkney.  With its unwavering attention to detail and its commitment to time honoured craftsmanship, Highland Park single malt scotch whisky has long been regarded as one of the best whiskies in the world. 

Gerry Tosh, Global Marketing Manager for Highland Park, said “Working with Linn and helping to produce such a special version of their iconic Sondek LP12 Turntable is a great honour. Not only have we helped create a great looking piece of kit, the density of our hand selected, Spanish oak casks has also added to the already impressive sound quality.  The joining together of Linn and Highland Park, makes perfect sense and has created a powerful sensory platform that will appeal to both the whisky lover and the music lover – this is sure to be a highly sought after offering that will be desired by our fans from all over the world.”

Angus Lawrie, Marketing Director for Linn, said: “We’re delighted to be working with such an established and quality driven brand to mark this special occasion. Both Highland Park and Linn have a strong heritage in their respective fields.  We share the same values in terms of passion, innovation and exacting standards to ensure we continue to make world-leading products.”
