Highland Park has launched Dark Origins, a new single malt whisky inspired by the company’s founder.

Product details:

Dark Origins is a non-chill filtered single malt with an ABV of 46.8 per cent. It uses twice as many first fill sherry casks than in the classic Highland Park 12-year-old resulting in a naturally darker, richer flavour with sherried spice, a chocolate twist and the signature sweet smoky taste.


Highland Park is one of the few distilleries not using distiller’s caramel and so Dark Origins takes its natural colour from the interaction between spirit and cask which Highland Park believes consistently rate amongst the best casks in whisky.


Dark Origins will be exclusively available from Harrods from 1 July to 14 July at an RRP of £64.95. Afterwards it will be available from specialist independent whisky retailers, at the Highland Park distillery and www.highlandpark.co.uk​.

Why you should buy it:

Global marketing manager at Highland Park Gerry Tosh said: “Cask management is so very crucial to our work at Highland Park. We have strived to raise the bar, working tirelessly in sourcing the right wood and then working and finessing the balances to ensure we create single malt that is rich, warm and enticing in flavour. Dark Origins sits in the heart of our core range complimenting them perfectly – distinct in itself, but always and forever a classic Highland Park.”
