Former Formula 1 racing driver David Coulthard has partnered with Highland Park single malt Scotch to create two special edition whiskies, including a hand-signed, bespoke single cask expression, in support of Scottish charities.

David Coulthard has partnered with Highland Park on two limited edition whiskies

The single cask bottling, Highland Park Saltire Edition 1, and special edition Saltire Edition 2, are both 13 year old whisky’s inspired by Coulthard’s 13 Grand Prix victories.

A percentage of the proceeds from the sales of both whiskies will go towards supporting charities in Dumfries, giving back to the region that helped David during the early years of his career.

David’s Formula 1 career also inspired the design of the packaging with the saltire logo from his helmet, based upon the national flag of Scotland, featured on the label alongside his signature.

Coulthard personally selected the whiskies during a trip to Orkney.

He said: “I’ve enjoyed participating in the whisky creation process and I’m proud that Highland Park is helping me bring the project to life. The whiskies are inspired by my Formula 1 career, I had 13 Grand Prix wins and this feels like the 14th.”

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 including the RNLI Stromness Lifeboat Anniversary Bottling and Orkneyinga Legacy Centre whisky.

Only 734 bottles of Saltire Edition 1 will be available to purchase from today (21 February) from the Highland Park website at an RRP of £139.
