Highland Black Profile

Blended Scotch Whisky

Like its three-year-old portfolio sibling Highland Earl, Highland Black wears its eight years with pride. A blend of Speyside and Highland malt whiskies with grain whisky from Girvan distillery in the Lowlands, Hughland Black has been praised for its fruity, pineapple flavours and creamy texture, and above all its very competitive price.

Highland Black History

Highland Black Eight Year Old hit the shelves as an own label whisky by budget supermarket chain Aldi. It launched in the early-2000s and has been winning industry awards ever since, often (mistakenly) cited as the ‘best whisky in the world’ in international press.
