New York based Gillies grew up in Edinburgh and used her expertise in jewellery making to create the elementally inspired bottle. It not only features the metallic net, but also a piece of Orkney sandstone carved with the Highland Park crest and a hidden silver replica of the Rose Window from Orkney's St Magnus cathedral inside the bottle, slowly revealed as the whisky is drunk.
This would mean little if the liquid itself wasn't also impressive and inevitably it is. Only 275 bottles were produced from a vatting of five casks, all filled in 1960, and it has the hallmarks of continuing Highland Park's reputation for superb old whisky.
