Highland Park Dark Origins

Highland Park has launched a core expression inspired by founder and distiller Magnus Eunson. 

Dark Origins, a non-chill filtered single malt with 46.8% abv, will be available in Harrods from in 1- 14 July and launched internationally throughout autumn.
Highland Park uses twice as many first fill sherry casks in Dark Origins than the classic Highland Park 12 year old, resulting in “a naturally darker, richer flavour with sherried spice, a chocolate twist and the signature sweet smoke.”  

At an rrp of £64.95, Dark Origins will be available from specialist whisky retailers at the Highland Park distillery following the UK launch at Harrods this month. 

Gerry Tosh, global marketing manager, said: “Cask management is so crucial to our work at Highland Park. We have strived to raise the bar, working tirelessly in sourcing the right wood and then working and finessing the balances to ensure we create single malt that is rich, warm and enticing in flavour.
“Dark Origins sits in the heart of our core range complimenting them perfectly-distinct in itself, but always and forever a classic Highland Park.”

COP26 littered newspaper headlines throughout November. The focus was supposed to be on resolving the climate change crisis, but predictably turned into a game of political chess. In the absence of any authoritative leadership, our industry needs to set an example.
