Highland Park was founded in 1798 and is located in Kirkwall, Orkney Island. It is the most northern distillery in Scotland, about a mile away to the north of Scapa distillery.

They use a mix of peated and non peated barley, with the total phenol content about 20 ppm. Highland Park is a very renowned distillery, and its single malts constantly win awards in world competitions.
