Highland Park launch Cask Strength Release No. 1
— Straight from the cask method delivers whisky in its purest form —
Orkney based distillery, Highland Park, has introduced a cask strength edition to its award-winning single malt Scotch whisky range.
Highland Park Cask Strength Release No.1 will be available globally from September 2020. The ‘straight from the cask’ whisky, is whisky in its purest form, with no water added after maturation which gives the whisky a robust and intense flavour with a greater depth of finish.
Gordon Motion, Highland Park, master whisky maker, selected and married together predominantly sherry seasoned American oak casks of different ages to create the whisky. His focus was to create a harmonious balance of flavour in the classic Highland Park style.
Gordon Motion, said: “A cask strength whisky is very much made the traditional way but it doesn’t have to be enjoyed so. Its full flavour allows you the control to discover the taste and strength that appeals to your palate by adding ice or water according to your preference.
“I want to give everyone who loves Highland Park the chance to experience our single malt whisky in its purest from by bottling ‘straight from the cask’ but allowing you to choose the strength you want to drink this special single malt.”
This whisky is the first in a line of batch releases which means each batch will share the same underlying character in the whisky but with different flavours coming to the fore based on the cask make-up.
Highland Park Cask Strength Release No.1 will be available to purchase from specialist whisky retailers and from the Highland Park online shop. To find out more visit:www.highlandparkwhisky.com
