This is a limited edition bottling and is to commemorate the St Magnus Festival in Orkney’s midsummer celebration of the arts. 500 bottles of the 12 year old Highland Park Single Malt Scotch Whisky have been released with a special edition label.
The St Magnus Festival was founded in 1977 by Orkney’s distinguished resident composer Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, the Festival brings a feast of music and other arts to locations throughout the Orkney Islands. Offering a unique mix of world-class performance and community participation the Festival is, like Highland Park, simultaneously local and international. The 30th St Magnus Festival celebrates the life and work of Orkney’s great poet and storyteller George Mackay Brown, whose presence and writing graced the Festival from its inception until George’s death in 1996.
‘And the whisky what is it but the earth’s rich essence, a symbol of all fruit and corn and cheerfulness and kindling?’ George Mackay Brown, Under Brinkie’s Brae 11/1/79
