Highland Park WhiskyHighland Park Whisky Distillery is to be found in Kirkwall, Orkney. It is the most northerly whisky distillery in Scotland, yet just half a mile farther north than Scapa Distillery. The Highland Park Whisky Distillery was founded in 1798 and the name Highland Park Whisky does not refer to the area of Scotland known as The Highlands, from which Orkney is excluded, but to the fact that the Highland Park Whisky Distillery was established on an area called "High Park", being distinguished from a lower area nearby. Highland Park is one of the few distilleries to malt its own barley using locally cut peat. The peat is then mixed with heather before being used as fuel. The malt is peated to a level of 20 parts per million phenol and then mixed with un-peated malt produced on the Scottish mainland.
