Description

History

Highland Park is the northernmost distillery in all of Scotland, located in the city of Kirkwall, in Orkney, a mysterious and almost mystical place, very suggestive. The distillery was founded in 1798 by Magnus Eunson, a Protestant pastor but also an illegal whiskey distiller, very skilled in “exploiting” this noble occupation of his to hide his real passion: whiskey production. The distillery is also one of the most traditional in Scotland; for example, he continues to malt the cereals on the historic stone floors, an element that gives the products a marked and peculiar aroma and balance. Another element that characterizes this company is the particular Orkney peat, among the most fragrant due to the absence of trees at those latitudes.

Production method

To produce a single malt whiskey, the barley is first subjected to a malting process, during which the complex sugars/starches present in the cereal are broken down into simple sugars, suitable for alcoholic fermentation by the hands of the yeasts. This procedure takes place in three phases: the maceration of the cereal in water to moisten it, the germination, during which the barley, which has been removed from the water, absorbs oxygen and begins to produce the radicle and to germinate; this procedure in particular will release the enzyme which is responsible for the transformation of starches into simple sugars. Subsequently this procedure is interrupted and the cereal is dried, which often takes place using peat-powered ovens, which will give the typical hints of smoked or brackish. Subsequently, the dried barley is ground and added again with hot water for further extraction of the must; this is what will be subsequently fermented and then distilled. The specification provides that for the wording single malt the whiskey must come from a single distillery and be aged for at least three years in oak barrels in Scotland.
