VIKING SOULS, ORKNEY HEARTS
10 miles from the northernmost reaches of the Scottish mainland lie the scattering of 70 or so islands which make up Orkney. They were settled by vikings over 1,000 years ago. To this day, only 20 are inhabited. Here the conditions are ruthless. Elemental. Tough for making a living, but perfect for making whisky.
Our distillery is perched atop high ground on the southern edge of Kirkwall, and stands watch over the town. For over 220 years, our distillery has sat stoically through long winters, raging storms, and 100mph winds. It all makes for more harmonious whisky.
We believe that nothing good in life should come easy… and if it does, throw it back.A fish tastes better when you've caught it, whisky tastes better when you've earned it, and victory tastes better when you were the one putting in the legwork.
Worthwhile things take time and they test your worth.If you can appreciate that, then pour yourself a Highland Park, and raise your glass to what's in it.
