Highland Park Brings 21 Year Old to U.K. Market - 2nd March, 2012

Highland Park is launching a 21 year old single malt into its UK portfolio for the first time, two years after it was removed from global distribution following a complete sell out of the award winning product.

Limited stock of Highland Park 21 year old, which was named ‘best whisky in the world 2009’ in the World Whisky Awards, is now available. Significant demand is expected, including in the restaurant trade which has seen a 151% increase in premium malts sales.

Matured in mainly American oak Sherry casks, Highland Park 21 year old is full flavoured with hints of candied orange peel and spicy dark chocolate leading to a rich smoky sensation. It is Orkney sunset reddish gold in appearance, with a complex sweet smoky finish.

Gerry Tosh, Global Marketing Manager, Highland Park commented: “Bottling the 21 year old at 47.5% gives this particular expression maximum flavour delivery, which is always a priority for Highland Park. It also has drier smokier notes allowing whisky drinkers the opportunity to taste another side of Highland Park. It is fantastic to be bringing this to consumers in the UK.”

Highland Park 21 year old will join Highland Park’s permanent portfolio of 12, 18, 25, 30 and 40 year old single malts. It will be available from specialist independent whisky retailers throughout the UK, the Highland Park distillery and at a RRP of £100. It will also be available in selected bars and restaurants.
