UK confectionery firm Orkney Fudge has developed a new joint venture with Highland Park Whisky for a new product.

The companies have launched Orkney Fudge flavored with 12-year-old malt whisky from Highland Park Distillery.

The product will be produced at Orkney's factory on the Orkney Islands situated off the North coast of Scotland.

Orkney Fudge, owned by Argos Bakery, has also been growing its presence by recently securing a deal with wholesaler Palmer and Harvey to increase distribution in outlets throughout the UK.

“We’re also forging distribution links with some of the UK’s leading supermarkets,” said Ewan McDill, Orkney Fudge’s production manager.

“Combined with the Palmer and Harvey deal, all this activity is helping establish Orkney Fudge as a nationally recognised and iconic Orkney brand,” he said.
