HIGHLAND PARK DISTILLERY Sheil
The creation of outstanding whisky is part science and part art. How you creatively combine ingredients, contrast cask types, harmonise the new make spirit, all play a hand in the character and flavour of the whisky. Normally, our hand-turned maltings account for 20% of the malt used in Highland Park whisky. For Shiel, a special edition release from 2017, we used 100% in order to deliver the most powerful intensity of peat smoke possible.
