The Càrn Mòr Celebration of the Cask range of Single Cask Whisky from the family-owned independent bottlers, Morrison and Mackay (now Morrison Scotch Whisky Distillers), are a very limited range from distilleries all over Scotland. All the bottles are numbered and once they are gone they cannot be replaced as they are all one off bottlings from a single cask. They are bottled at cask strength and are all non-chill-filtered. 

The history of Highland Park distillery is shrouded in mystery, with even the identity of its founder being disputed. It was built on the remote island of Orkney in 1798, either by farmer David Robertson, or priest turned whisky smuggler Magnus Eunson. The first single malts were released in the 1970s, and the distillery has become known for its use of Orcadian peat to dry the barley (lighter than mainland or Islay peat), and sherry casks for maturation.

Highland Park was built by David Robertson all the way back in 1798. The distillery's relationship with blenders, Robertson & Baxter, saw it acquired by Highland Distillers in 1937, who were subsequently bought by Edrington in 1999, who run it today. The modern Highland Park single malt brand was first officially bottled in the 1970s, with the release of an 8 year old age statement, but distillery bottlings first appeared around the 1950s. The look of the brand has changed many times over the years, but its cult following and popularity has never diminished. It remains one of the most recognisable single malts in the world to this day.

This is a Celebration of the Cask bottling, the single cask sub-category of Morrison Scotch Whisky Distillers’ Carn Mor label. Formerly Morrison & Mackay, they are a Perth-based company producing a number of whisky liqueurs as well as independent single malts and blends, including the popular recently revived Old Perth. In 2017 the firm completed the construction of the Aberargie distillery in the town of the same name.
