Indeed Highland Park’s 25 year expression has triumphed on many occasion and no less so than when it was awarded the first ever 100-point score, along with the Chairman’s Trophy for Best of Category, by judges at Ultimate Beverage Challenge’s fourth annual Ultimate Spirits Challenge in New York in 2013.
