To celebrate 50 years of being Crafted by Scotland, Scottish Ballet has partnered with Orkney based distillery, Highland Park, to release a single malt Scotch Whisky.
Available to order online now, Highland Park will make a donation from the sales of the 5,000 bottles to support Scottish Ballet, enabling us to continue to deliver outreach projects across the country from Kirkwall to Kilmarnock.
Based in Kirkwall, Orkney, Highland Park distillery has been supporting the community on their island home for a number of years through charity partnerships and collaborations. Scottish Ballet’s work off stage in communities across the length and breadth of Scotland is as important to the company as its 50th anniversary season on stage.
Featuring the legendary Highland Park flavours, aromatic peat smoke and heather honey sweetness, the whisky’s spicy flavour profile reflects our exciting repertoire, while an intense character shows the passion of the company.
Highland Park Scottish Ballet will be available to purchase from the Highland Park website from October 2019. Find out more and purchase here.
‘We embrace our 50th anniversary with an unprecedented programme of new work, affirming our commitment to be one of the most daring dance companies in the world. The Viking Soul of Highland Park resonates with us and we are delighted this new partnership will support us to share our passion and ambition with as many people in Scotland as possible through our outreach projects.’
Christopher Hampson, CEO / Artistic Director, Scottish Ballet
‘Our brand is grounded in Orkney’s Viking heritage and we look to collaborate with modern day Viking Souls to help bring this to life. For us, Scottish Ballet’s relentless commitment to their art mirrors the dedication we have for our craft and we believe that’s something that will really resonate with both our audiences.’Jason Craig, Global Brand Director, Highland Park
