    Stromness Lifeboat Anniversary Bottling – Exclusive to Orkney

    We’re delighted to announce the launch of a limited edition of Highland Park released to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the RNLI lifeboat stationed at Stromness. For every bottle sold, we’ll make a donation to local RNLI activities here on Orkney.

    During the Royal National Lifeboat Institution’s 150 years on Orkney, the brave volunteers have saved hundreds of lives, often in daring and dramtic rescues and many of these stories are related in the bottle’s necktag. As the first lifeboat was launched from Stromness in 1867, we’ve produced just 1,867 bottles of this exclusive limited edition, bottling the whisky at 55.9% ABV to reflect the length (55.9 feet) of their current Severn class lifeboat.

    Naturally clear and bright with burnished gold hues, this Highland Park expression delivers notes of lemon peel, toasted oak, vanilla and hints of ginger overlaid with light peat smoke and a lingering spiciness.


    This is an Orkney only exclusive expression, we will not be releasing it through our online shop or by phone at the distillery. The only opportunity to reserve this limited edition, will be at a Highland Park and RNLI hosted event at the Pickaquoy Centre in Kirkwall on 9th & 10th December 2017, between 10am and 4pm. If you are successful at the event, you will receive a numbered voucher which will guarantee a bottle – these will be issued on a first come, first served basis and limited to one per household. These vouchers will be redeemable at the end of January 2018, where you will then be able to purchase your allocated bottle (at an RSP of £65) at the Highland Park distillery visitor centre shop in exchange for your reserved voucher.

    This event will be the only opportunity to buy this exclusive bottling.
