Linn’s Limited Edition Sondek LP12s Made Out Of Whisky Casks
Linn Products is an engineering company that manufactures hi-fi and audio equipment. Founded by Ivor Tiefenbrun in Glasgow, Scotland in 1973, the company is best known as the manufacturer of the iconic Linn Sondek LP12 turntable.
In 2013, Linn celebrated its 40th Anniversary with a limited edition Sondek LP12 launched in partnership with specialist whisky distiller Highland Park. The 40th Anniversary LP12 was produced as limited run of 40 individually numbered units featuring Linn’s highest Sondek specification and including a plinth sourced from 100-year-old Highland Park whisky barrels.

The anniversary Sondeks, priced at £25,000 ($30,370) were also supplied with a dual branded bottle of 40-year-old Highland Park single malt whisky, worth £900 ($1,100).
Hand turned malt, aromatic peat, cool maturation and sherry oak casks give the drink a floral, sweet, rich, multi-dimensional taste. It sounds great to have the option of enjoying a dram of whisky while listening to music on the Limited Edition Sondek LP12.
