Note

Highland Park has created a special edition bottling to celebrate the 180th Anniversary of the launch of The Spectator Magazine. The Spectator was established in 1828 and is the oldest published magazine in the English language.

Only 180 bottles have been produced using Highland Park 30 year old. The label is bespoke and carries the signature of Max McFarlane, Highland Park’s Whisky Maker and Andrew Neil, The Spectator’s Publisher and Chairman. The limited edition bottle is presented in a commemorative wooden box, containing a bespoke leaflet explaining the partnership.
