The Peedie Experience

The Peedie Experience

viking harmony
Let us welcome you to Highland Park, meet our people, try our whisky, and learn about our island home. Inspired by the local word for small, the ‘peedie’ tasting is a 45 minute experience with our local host at the Highland Park Kirkwall store, right in the centre of Kirkwall. It’s a great opportunity to learn how we make our whisky and what makes it taste so distinctive.
It’s part skill, developed over hundreds of years (we’re at 225 years and counting) and part Orkney. We work hand-in-hand with nature to forge our traditions and our unique environment creates a different kind of whisky.
We’ll introduce you to Highland Park and you’ll learn more about Orkney and the role the islands play in shaping our whisky. We’ll show you a short film of our whisky making process and our local host will guide you through a tasting of a selection of our core range whiskies.
You’re in for a very special treat.

SILENT SEASON

Our silent season usually runs from July to September. We have one every year for essential maintenance at the distillery. From April 2024, we are closing our gates for an extended silent season to let the engineers give our 225 year-old distillery an environmental upgrade. This will cut our carbon emissions at the distillery by 20%. Whilst we’re closed come visit us at the Highland Park Albert Street store in the heart of Kirkwall.
