Take It Up a Notch with Highland Park Scotch

Nothing says fall like apples, cinnamon… and Scotch!

Changing leaves make us want to mix up some comforting cocktails, invite friends over and enjoy a luxurious night in. So, just in time for Thanksgiving, we’ve mixed up some delicious drinks. Our pick for mixing is Highland Park’s Single Malt Scotch, because of its full flavor and subtle smoky-sweet finish.
