Good whiskey always contains history and long traditions. Twice as much is invested in the drink we will tell you about. Especially for lovers of malt drink, Highland Park has increased its collection dedicated to Bulgarian history.

Within about a year, the distillery presented three Bottles of limited series dedicated to legendary moments from the almost 14-century-old history of the Balkan state. Highland Park Single Cask Bulgaria 917 is the third final element in the exclusive series. The bottle is dedicated to the victory of King Simeon the Great in the Battle of Aheloy on August 20, 917.

The whiskey has been aged for 12 years in a 240-litre barrel of European oak sherry, first filling. The barrel is numbered #7238 and the alcohol content of the drink is 63.1%. Distilled in 2006 and bottled in 2019, it is only limited to 317 bottles.

The Highland Park Single Cask Bulgaria project is inspired by the fact that Bulgaria is one of the oldest countries in Europe, retaining its name, since its inception. The idea is unique worldwide as well as its theme.
