High age statement whiskies are always a valuable addition to any collection and 50 year old bottlings are exceptionally rare; we have just 3 bottles all landed in HK.

Highland Park is said to have been established in 1798 by Magnus Eunson, a butcher and church officer by day and whisky smuggler by night. The distillery is known for being the only one that utilizes Orkney peat to smoke its barley. The peat is largely compacted heather that can be up to 9,000 years old. Highland Park has long had a reputation for extraordinary quality, achieved over many years of continuously excellent production. According to a Rare Whisky 101 analysis, it was ranked behind Macallan in whisky auction sales in 2018.

Glenfiddich is one of the most awarded distilleries at the International Spirits Challenge. It's often unfairly overlooked for higher age statements and collectible bottles, perhaps due to its widespread availability. Even in the highest age claims, the distinctive delicate fruitiness shines through, with this being a Speyside distiller's high-quality portfolio. The stills haven't altered much since the 1880s!

The Balvenie distillery was created in 1892 by the owners of the nearby Glenfiddich, using second-hand stills from Lagavulin and Glen Albyn. It is unusual for a distillery's originating company to remain the distillery's owner; most have changed hands several times or been acquired through mergers. Balvenie is known for refusing to sell casks for independent bottling; when they do, they usually blend in a small quantity of something else so it can't be labeled a single malt.


Why we like it:

• All landed in HK.
• Incredibly rare 50yo bottlings from some highly respected distilleries.
• Just one bottle of each.
