Our new special bottling, Hobbister, will be available to buy from our online shop at 1.00pm (UK time) on Monday 15 August 2016. This is an exclusive offer to our Inner Circle members and the order form will only be accessible via a link that will be emailed to those members on the day itself.
Highland Park Hobbister is the first release in the Keystone Series – a collection of special bottlings that highlight our five Keystones of production which combine to make Highland Park stand apart from other Single Malts.
Hobbister takes its name from our peat moor. Lying seven short miles from our distillery, the exposed and barren moor offers little cover from the ferocious winds that frequently batter the island. This environment creates a unique aromatic peat consisting of decaying heather and plants rather than the trees that characterise the peat used by other distilleries.
Hobbister has been specially created by our Master Whisky Maker to showcase the distinctive aromatic flavour produced when this treeless local peat is burned in our ancient kiln fires to dry the malted barley used to make our whisky.
Limited to only 1,200 bottles @ £75 each, demand for Hobbister is likely to be high so to be fair to everyone, purchases will be restricted to one bottle per person on a first come, first served basis. We regret that we can’t accept any advance orders in this case.
