Highland Park Rebus 30th Anniversary 10 Year Old

12th April 2017
Special edition bottle of Highland Park to mark 30th anniversary of the publication of Scottish author Ian Rankin's first "Inspector Rebus" novel.

Highland Park Rebus 30 10 Year OldBack in 2007 some of you may have been lucky enough to get your hands on a bottle of Highland Park Rebus 20 year old, a special bottling of Highland Park released to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the publication of Scottish author Ian Rankin's 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'. Today this bottle now fetches in excess of £1,200 at auction.

Another 10 years on and Highland Park have once again teamed up with Ian Rankin, they have just announced the release of Highland Park Rebus 30 10 Year Old, a special edition of 10,000 bottles to mark the 30th anniversary of the iconic Edinburgh detective John Rebus, one of crime fiction’s best loved creations.

The Highland Park Rebus 30 10 Year Old whisky was created by Highland Park Master Whisky Maker, Gordon Motion, who describes it as "natural colour, mature citrus fruits and creamy vanilla with a hint of peppery sauce". An intensely balanced single malt fit for a detective who truly stands apart.

I am pleased to tell you that the special edition Highland Park Rebus 30 10 year old which is bottled at 40% ABV will have a very palatable price tag of £30 and it will be available to members of Highland Parks Inner Circle, so if you want a bottle you need to head over to the Highland Park website and sign up for free to join HP's Inner Circle and register your interest in a bottle of the new Highland Park Rebus 30 10 Year Old.

Registration of interest for this bottle is open now and the commemorative bottling will be delivered in time for the launch of RebusFest at the end of June 2017.

In addition for those who will be in Edinburgh for the RebusFest, 30th June - 2nd July, Highland Park’s brand ambassador Martin Markvardsen will be hosting two whisky Master Classes on Friday 30th June and Saturday 1st July at the Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh – The Caledonian. As well as learning all about why Highland Park stands apart from other single malts, guests will be given a unique opportunity to taste Highland Park Rebus30 along with some of the brand’s other special whiskies.

The Highland Park Rebus 30 10 Year Old will be available for delivery to Highland Park Inner Circle members in Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, South Africa and of course the UK and the Channel Islands. However you do not need to be a resident of these countries to purchase, providing you can give a shipping address within one of them. UK shipping cost will be £5.99. Regarding the number of bottles you are able to purchase, Highland Park tell me that there isn't currently a set limit in place, however this will be assessed once they have an idea of demand.

Meanwhile you will find the current Highland Park whisky range available from specialist online whisky retailers such as Master of Malt
