ORKNEY ROWING CLUB has been bottled at 58% to deliver a bold and intense single malt whisky that balances the sweetness of honey and vanilla with the fire of root ginger, carried on a wave of aromatic peat smoke. Highland Park have released 4,000 bottles and will donate a percentage of the proceeds from sales to the club.
Many centuries ago, Viking oarsmen propelled their mighty longships through thousands of miles of water in search of new lands. The members of Orkney Rowing Club may not travel thousands of miles, but pulling together as a team sits at the heart of everything they do. Established in 2014, the club began with just seven members and one boat – a 23-foot, clinker-build Shetland Yoal. Today, it has five traditional boats and around 40 members, and every year raises significant amounts of money to support local charities.
