Having once been part of Denmark and Norway, Orkney became the raiding headquarters for Norwegian Vikings in the 8th and 9th century, shaping a unique past for the island. Magnus Eunson, who founded Highland Park in 1798, was a direct descendent of those first Viking pioneers.
The Core Range has also been repackaged with a full embossed bottle design
Distinctively more Viking in nature, the Core Range of Highland Park Distillery -10 Year Old, 12 Year Old and 18 Year Old -now carries a full embossed bottle design, with markings drawn from the wood panelling’s of the 12th century Urnes Stave Church in Norway. The markings depict the legend of a lion locked in enduring battle with the forces of evil in the form of serpent-like dragons and is a common art style found on many Viking artefacts.
Also drawing on its rich Viking history and mythology, Highland Park introduces Valkyrie, a new special edition single malt Scotch whisky. Designed in partnership with renowned Danish designer Jim Lynvgild, Valkyrie is the first in a series of three Viking Legend releases.
Highland Park approached Danish designer Jim Lynvgild, himself a modern day Viking and expert in Norse mythology, to design a striking new packaging for the three special edition whiskies. In his distinctive style, Lynvgild has interpreted the ancient legend of the Valkyries - avenging horse-backed angels who combed the battlefields for the bravest of their fallen warriors - in an expressive, story-telling illustration for Highland Park.
The Highland Park Valkyrie is priced at $165 (before GST).
