Highland Park Single Malt 12 Year Viking Heart 750ml
Any single malt devotee will love the newly released Highland Park 15 Year Old with its delicious vanilla, crème brulee and charred pineapple character. Plus, with its eco-friendly reusable ceramic bottle, this whisky will make a stylish addition to any home bar.
To create 15 Year Old, Gordon Motion, Highland Park's Master Whisky Maker, selected predominantly sherry seasoned European oak casks for their warm, spicy notes and sherry seasoned American oak casks to provide a balance of sweet vanilla. Expertly adding just a few refill casks to soften and smooth the flavors, Gordon chose to bottle at 44% ABV to allow the whisky’s vibrant fruitiness and distinctive heathery peat smoke to shine through. Why a ceramic decanter? Rewind a century or two and whisky would have been stored in earthenware vessels. Inspired by examples found at the distillery in Orkney, Highland Park commissioned Wade Ceramics to create a modern version. Established in 1810 and based in Stoke-on-Trent in England (known globally as the traditional home of ceramics) Wade share Highland Park's commitment to environmental responsibility, focusing on sustainable manufacturing and using locally sourced raw materials.
The lead-free porcelain decanter is 100% food safe, glazed inside and out, and embossed with the lion and serpent design that appears on many of the distillery's glass bottles. Look closely at the back of the bottle and you’ll find the heart motif that inspired the whisky’s name.
