Highland Park Rebus30 10 Year Old

April 6, 2017

Highland Park Whisky is proud to announce a collaboration with legend of British crime author Ian Rankin and Orion Publishing to help mark the 30th anniversary of John Rebus, one of crime fictions best loved characters.

As part of the 30th Anniversary celebrations, a special edition of Highland Park is being produced – Rebus30, a 10 year old single malt Scotch whisky, that will be available for Rebus fans to buy exclusively from Highland Park.

Jason R. Craig, Highland Park, Brand Director, said: “This is a very special partnership for the brand as we were involved ten years ago when Ian celebrated the 20th anniversary of the publication of the first ‘Inspector Rebus’ novel Knots and Crosses. At that time, Ian was invited to visit the distillery on Orkney where he chose a special single cask. The whisky’s flavour profile was chosen according to what Ian felt Rebus would prefer – cask no 3272, was ‘dark, complex and with a long finish’.

“To celebrate Rebus30, our brief was to craft a 10 year old single malt fit for an iconic detective who truly stands apart. The result is stunning single malt created by Gordon Motion, our Master Whisky Maker and a tribute to those with a strong independent spirit and those who know their own mind.

“Best shared with friends or when enjoying a dark crime novel!”

Fans will be able to buy this commemorative bottling for £30 (plus postage) for a 70cl bottle and it will be available in time for the launch of RebusFest at the end of June 2017 for delivery to the following countries: Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, South Africa, UK and the Channel Islands.

With only 10,000 bottles produced, demand is expected to be high. A period for people to register their interest in buying a bottle will be open from 6th to 28th April. The registration form is available via the link below with the only requirement being that people agree to join the Highland Park Inner Circle if they are not yet a member.

    Rebus introduced me to Whisky – this would now be the perfect addition to my collection!

  7. Cynthia Elliott says:

    Hello, It looks like you will not be sending any of the Rebus30 to the US. I will be in the U.K. In August. Is there a way to purchase a bottle that I can pick up when I’m there?

  8. Jamie brightwell says:

    I love Rebus, he alwasalwasys closes his cases and along the way. Hope is healthier in next book, I have read all books at least three times, starting round four. It would be very bleak without Rebus.

    Here’s hoping Rebus manages to evade the grim reaper and lives to solve another case.
