World Whiskies Design Award for best design in 2012.

Highland Park 50 Year Old - Posted by Hammerstone's Whiskey Disks, makers of the world's best whiskey stones.

Highland Park 50 Years Old

Edrington Group

The Highland Park 50 Year Old, designed by Scottish born, multi award winning jewellery designer Maeve Gillies was chosen by the team of judges as the standout overall winner of Best Design from the products entered into this year’s awards.

Inspired by Orkney, the concept around the design was a nautical/marine theme that looked like something washed up on a beach after 50 years. The whisky is like a jewel with the bottle seemingly growing around the whisky.

The outer casing, designed to resemble a net, is hand crafted from solid sterling silver with an amulet at the heart of the bottle made from Orcadian sandstone and containing the Highland Park logo. This bottle absolutely blew the judges away. It blew us away too. Oh, how we’d like to get our greedy little hands on a bottle, and pour a tipple over one of our handcrafted whiskey stones.

ABV: 44.8%
Bottle size: 700ml
Origin: Scotland

    It’s almost like looking into the eye of Sauron. I like the design but I’d never look at it wondering if I should be afraid of orcs showing up to worship it or hobbits showing up to destroy it with a ring.

    I recently saw this bottle in the flesh near Pitlochry, Scotland. RRP was £10,000!! Yes – ten thousand British pounds!! Couldn’t convince the wife to let me buy some!
