Highland Park Twisted Tattoo 16 Years Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Volume: 700ml ABV: 46.7% Age: 16 Years Old Country: Scotland
Welcome to Scotland’s most northerly distillery (written in 2018) situated on Orkney a large Island of the coast of northern Scotland. In the 18th century an infamous smuggler called Magnus Eunson operated an illicit distillery. When Magnus was caught one of the men who captured him was excise officer John Robertson who took over the running of the distillery in 1816.
The distillery was founded in the 1790’s so this makes it one of the oldest distilleries in Scotland. Every part of production here was done by hand and even today Highland Park still take time and hardwork by producing malted barley with tradition floor maltings. Highland Park is now owned by the Edrington Group and William Grant & Sons, it produces 2,500,000 litres of whisky annually. The distillery now has a very good visitors centre which was awarded 5 stars as a recognised attraction.
For the first time Highland park Distillery have married whisky matured in first-fill ex-Bourbon casks with whisky matured in Spanish ex-Rioja wine casks. The Twisted Tattoo has been aged for 16 years and is bottled at 46.7% abv.
Inspiration for the Twisted Tattoo came from the Viking legend of the Midgard Serpent, which got itself twisted around the world to bite its own tail!
