Hillhead - One of 1200

The Hillhead bottle description


HILLHEAD is named after our distillery in Kirkwall and explores the impact of cask harmonisation – a process that is fundamental to creating an intensely balanced whisky like Highland Park.

For every batch of Highland Park released, Gordon Motion, our Master Whisky Maker, carefully selects up to 150 matured casks and combines them. The whisky is then left to rest for a minimum of a month before being bottled. During this critical resting period, flavours from the different casks have time to mix, settle and harmonise.

For HILLHEAD, Gordon selected three first-fill casks – sherry seasoned European oak, sherry seasoned American oak and ex-bourbon American oak – to highlight the impact of harmonisation on our intensely balanced flavour.

What is the character of the whisky?

Colour: Full gold, clear and bright

Nose: Creamy vanilla, coconut, lemon peel and clear honey

Palate: Sweet, vanilla and light spicy smokiness

Finish: Medium sweet, vanilla and smoke

What is the ABV?

46% – marrying strength

Who created it?

HILLHEAD was created by Gordon Motion, our Master Whisky Maker.

How many bottles will be available?
