The dark and light are concepts that exist in opposition, yet together create a perfect balance, and inspired our limited edition releases of the same name. The Dark 17 Year Old is a whisky for reflection; in it we celebrate autumn and winter in Orkney – a time to escape from wild weather outside and gather with friends and family, sharing long nights of conversation and laughter around the fire.

A rich and powerful single malt whisky, The Dark has been matured exclusively in sherry seasoned oak casks and is presented in an embossed black glass bottle. The serpent dragon design on takes its inspiration from the great Norse sagas, embracing both the high sun of the summer solstice and the low sun of the winter solstice, while the runic writing reflects the ancient carvings of our Viking ancestors, here in Orkney.

‘Embernectar’ is the word we coined to describe this whisky’s unique flavour profile. It’s definitely easier than saying ‘distant campfires, toasted almonds, dried fruits, cinnamon, cedarwood, fruitcake and light smoke’.

We’ve been crafting our award-winning whisky at the Highland Park Distillery in Kirkwall, Orkney, since 1798. Age, experience and respect for tradition may define our whisky, but it’s Orkney that sets it apart. Something magic happens here and the result is the wild harmony of flavours found in our whisky.
