The actor soaks up the natural beauty of the archipelago in the whisky brand’s biggest campaign to date.

Single malt scotch whisky brand Highland Park is celebrating its 225-year history with an ode to its Orkney home in a short film featuring actor Gwendoline Christie.

Director Charlie Thomas is behind the film, which goes live on Highland Park’s social channels today (October 5).

’The Orkney Stories’ campaign will live across paid, earned and owned media between October and February, with an emphasis on the key markets of US, UK, APAC, Germany and the Nordics.

Christie was hands-on in the making of the film, beyond just starring in it, according to Highland Park, playing an instrumental role in shaping the creative direction of the campaign from the narrative to the props and costumes.
