Highland Park's History
While the Orkney’s locals had been honing their skills for a few centuries, it wasn’t until 1798 that an official distillery opened on the islands. But who it was that actually founded it is something still argued about in pubs today. It was either Magnus Eunson, church officer and butcher by day, and illicit distiller and whisky smuggler by night, or the honourable farmer David Robinson. What we do know, is that the distillery’s ornate iron gate has the year 1798 written on it and that’s when the distillery went into legal production, regularly paying duty on the spirit produced on site, and in 1826 Highland Park became one of Scotland’s first distilleries to get a license to make whisky.
