Highland Park Reveals Its Dark Origins

Highland Park Single Malt Scotch announces the launch of a new core expression inspired, it says, by the "cunning spirit and courageous personality of its founder, Magnus Eunson." Establishing a secret bunker in the hills of High Park in Orkney, Magnus ‘Mansie’ Eunson became a famed dark distiller back in the late 1700s, creating whisky for the people of Orkney to offer relief from the villainy of the tax collector. By day he worked tirelessly in his church providing spiritual guidance to the people of Orkney, but in the dead of night, he hand-crafted what was to ultimately become the best spirit in the world, warming hearts and uniting all who tasted it.
