Highland Park Soren Solkaer 26 Year Old Single Malt Whisky 700ml 40.5%
26 Years of Photography – Only 4 sets were allocated for NSW
Region: Islands (Orkney)
Cask type: Ex sherry and ex bourbon casks.
Bottler: Highland Park
This extremely limited-edition 26-year-old single malt from Highland Park has been created in collaboration with Soren Solkaer, a Danish photographer who has earned a global reputation in portraiture. Laid to rest in in a combination of ex-Sherry American oak casks and first-fill ex-Bourbon casks, it’s a very rare expression that was hand selected by Gordon Motion (Master Whisky Maker).
The whisky is accompanied by a leather-bound book which showcases photographic work from the 26 years of Søren’s career. Featuring 160 pages, it draws on three key themes – men, women and places – and includes an absorbing narrative, hand-written by Søren, describing his journey as a ‘visual storyteller.’
