Highland Park's Orkney Magic: Unveiling Single Cask # 3439 at Barrel & Batch.

Imagine a scene where the rugged beauty of Orkney's wild landscapes merges with the rich aromas of oak and smoke, creating a symphony of flavors in a glass of whisky.


For over two centuries, Highland Park Distillery has woven the essence of Orkney into every drop of their acclaimed whisky. Established in 1798 in Kirkwall, Orkney, they stand proudly today as one of Scotland's ten oldest active distilleries, a testament to their enduring commitment to age-old craftsmanship and respect for tradition.


Yet, it's not just the passage of time that defines Highland Park's whisky; it's the untamed spirit of Orkney that sets it apart, i.e. what they refer to as A Wild Harmony—a symphony of nature's elements that converge to create something truly magical, resulting in the intensely floral character of their treeless yet heather-rich peat, imbued with centuries of natural history.


As Highland Park's whisky matures in the finest sherry seasoned oak casks, it absorbs not just the flavors of the wood but the very essence of Orkney's wild soul. Sweet, smoky, and harmonious, each sip is a journey through time and terrain—a celebration of nature's raw beauty, viking spirit and the artistry of whisky-making that captures it.


Needless to say, we are excited about Highland Park having unveiled a gem for whisky enthusiasts - the 10-Year-Old Single Cask # 3439 Ex Sherry Single Malt Whisky.



This whisky tale began with a whisper, a story of sherry casks that infused Highland Park's creations with the essence of tradition. Now, with the third chapter in collaboration with Barrel & Batch, a new narrative unfolds, taking us deeper into the realm of complexity and artistry.


Distilled in 2011 and gracefully bottled in 2022, this whisky embodies a rich tapestry of flavors that transport you to a world of oak, smoke, violets, and vanilla. Each sip unveiling a new layer of complexity and allure, showcasing Highland Park's mastery of the craft.


Now available exclusively through Barrel and Batch, the Highland Park 10-Year-Old Single Cask #3439 invites you on a journey to experience the magic of Orkney encapsulated in a glass. It's not just whisky; it's a masterpiece crafted from centuries of tradition and a touch of Orkney's enchantment.
