Highland Park DistilleryJuly 25 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☁️ 17 °C
Had a quiet morning at the house.
After lunch Norma & Emma went swimming while Sarah and I visited the distillery.
We got a wee dram to start with while watching an introductory video. Then we started the tour but unfortunately it is the quiet season so there was no production happening. We were allowed to take pictures during the tour except inside the Still House.
One thing I saw on this tour that I've not seen before is the malting floor where they air dry the barley. The majority of distilleries don't do their own malting as it is expensive and labour intensive. Highland Park only malt 20% of what they use and buy in the rest.
They don't bottle on site the matured spirit is sent down to Glasgow.Read more
