    This whisky has a story to tell. A long, quiet story that owes its remarkable conclusion to the gentle influence of Orkney’s temperate climate, to our quest for balance and our desire for harmony.

    Gordon Motion, our Master Whisky Maker, selected nine refill casks first laid down in 1968 and married them together in 2008. Re-racked into first-fill sherry seasoned oak casks, they were left to harmonise for a further 12 years. Finally, in 2020, he selected just one European oak butt and married it with some of our 2018 batch of 50 Year Old, kept back specifically for this purpose.

    If you’re fortunate enough to taste this exceptional whisky, you’ll find delicate aromas of ripe black cherries, sweet Muscovado sugar, peaches and rich dark chocolate, conveyed on a whisper of new leather and soft peat smoke. A complex and vibrant intensity of flavours follows with exotic spices, candied orange peel, toasted oak and ripe apricots delivering a deliciously rich yet fragrant sweetness. Dry spices and the impression of dark espresso coffee linger at the finish, enrobed in aromatic peat smoke.

    Each bottle has been personally signed by Gordon Motion, Master Whisky Maker.

    Just 274 bottles of Highland Park 50 Year Old will be available through specialist retailers, globally. We’ll have a very limited number of bottles available to buy in our Kirkwall store in April. We’ll also have a limited number available to purchase from our online shop.
