Highland Park has collaborated with British crime author Ian Rankin to help mark the 30th anniversary of John Rebus, one of his most famous creations, with a 10yo single malt.
Rebus30 will be available for Rebus fans to buy exclusively from Highland Park.
‘To celebrate Rebus30, our brief was to craft a 10yo single malt fit for an iconic detective who truly stands apart,’ Jason R. Craig, Highland Park brand director, said.
‘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.’
The whisky’s flavour profile was chosen according to what Ian felt Rebus would prefer, Craig said. ‘Cask no 3272, was dark, complex and with a long finish,’ he added.
In addition to the Highland Park Rebus30 10yo single malt, the company will be auctioning a few limited edition Highland Park 30yo single malt.
Rebus and Highland Park fans will be able to buy this commemorative bottling for £30 (70cl) at the end of June 2017.
Registration of interest for this bottle will be open from early April. To hear further news on how to register for a bottle, go to highlandparkwhisky.com/Innercircle.
