The Drakkar, a type of Viking longship, symbolised mighty Norse rule and power. Historically, a longship’s prow would feature a figurehead carving of a fearsome beast – usually a serpent-like dragon – to protect the vessel and crew in battle and ward off the terrible sea monsters of Norse mythology.
Released in 2012 and matured in first-fill sherry seasoned American and European casks, Drakkar shows itself to have a character as bold as the warship it celebrates: Cherry blossoms explode in a fog of peat smoke, flanked by zest and citrus, launching a glorious advance on the senses.
We’ve been crafting our award-winning single malt whisky at the Highland Park distillery in Kirkwall, Orkney, since 1978. Age, experience and tradition may define our whisky but it’s Orkney that sets it apart. Something magic happens here and the result is the wild harmony of flavours found in our whisky.
