It was Magnus Eunson who founded Highland Park, back in 1798. Much is made of his Viking heritage around the distillery and there is little doubt that, being based on Orkney some 16km north of the Scottish mainland, that the climate is certainly pretty wild being surrounded by stormy seas. Despite its remoteness though, the temperature is relatively steady across the year (rarely varying out of between 2 and 16 degrees) which is perfect for maturing whisky.

Rob Roy Cocktail Recipe
If there was ever a cocktail to make you feel the glitz and glamour of the history and chic society of New York, it's ordering a Rob Roy Cocktail. This 19th century cocktail is believed to have been created at New York City’s Waldorf Hotel (if you want to visit today, you can head to the Waldorf Astoria). But who is Rob Roy? The cocktail is named not after the Scottish folk hero and outlaw Robert Roy MacGregor, but after the Broadway show that was showing at the time. The Rob Roy is a riff on a Manhattan, with their only difference being the base liquor. A Rob Roy is made using blended Scotch Whisky while a Manhattan is made with Rye Whisky. As such, the cocktail is malty and smooth, with a bit of spice on the finishing end.
