Highland Park Valkyrie

Highland Park unveiled the first bottling in a special edition range inspired by Viking history. Called Valkyrie, the release will be followed by Valknut and Valhalla in 2018/19.

Danish designer Jim Lyngvild, an expert in Norse mythology, has designed the new packaging for the new single malt range.

Valkyrie’s one-off design is inspired by two Nordic sources – a typical Viking pendant from around 300-700AD discovered in Uppland, Sweden and the ancient Hammar Stone of Gotland, which details the journey of the Valkyries.

Created by master whisky maker, Gordon Motion, the whisky “dials up more smoky notes” with the use of “heathery peated malt”, creating “a richer, fuller phenolic note that has balance due to the sweeter, heathery character of our moorland peat”.
