Highland Park Pure Malt - John Scott Kirkwall (98° Proof)

This bottle has created quite a stir here in the office. It's a fantastically well-preserved bottle of Highland Park Pure Malt Whisky from licensed Grocer and Ironmonger, John Scott.

John Scott has a long history in Orkney. The firm was originally a licensed grocer but John Scott obviously saw some potential in other products and it was no time before he was also selling hardware.

After a while, the firm outgrew its premises and John Scott made the decision to move to 15-19 Bridge Street, where the company remains to this day.

After World War 2 the decision was taken to turn the firm into a limited company and so, on 29th December 1955, the firm was incorporated and its name was changed from 'John Scott' to 'John Scott & Miller Ltd'.

This label features the pre-1955 name 'John Scott' and we date the bottle to the early 1950's. Bottled at 98° Proof. This is a rare chance to sample an incredibly old whisky from a bygone age.
