Highland Park Distillery was founded in 1798 by Magnus Eunson, an illicit Distiller and Smuggler of Whisky by night, but who also served his local community by day as the local church officer. You could say that the Lord works in mysterious ways and that Magnus liked to serve his congregation two spirits.
Hillhead is the final addition to the very collectable Keystone Series from Highland Park, released in April 2018 and only 1,200 bottles available exclusively for the inner circle members. The Keystone series was launched summer 2016 to share and showcase the impact made by the five traditional keystones of production on their flavour and character of Highland Park Whisky. Hobbister highlighted the contribution of unique heathery peat; Shiel, the impact of their hand-turned floor maltings; Quercus, the contribution made by sherry seasonal European oak casks and Yesnaby, the effect of temperature Orcadian climate. Hillhead is named after the distillery in Kirkwall and explores the impact of cask harmonisation. Master whisky maker Gordon Motion selected three first-fill casks – sherry seasoned European oak, sherry seasoned American oak and ex-bourbon American oak – to highlight the impact of harmonization in the intensely balanced whisky.
