King Christian 1
ABV : 46.8%
Volume : 700ml
Released in 2016, King Christian 1 is a rare limited edition within The Warrior Series, a collection of single malts created for Duty-Free to both introduce a key figure from Orkney’s Viking history, and to demonstrate the impact of cask type on our whisky’s flavour, which is immense.
Matured in a combination of refill butts and hogsheads of exceptional age and character, this whisky, like its namesake king, is the embodiment of unity. The flavours of honeycomb, sun-drenched tropical fruit, and heady spices all interplay with swirls of aromatic peat smoke.
Only 300 bottles were produced, and, inspired by Nordic glassware, this rarity is presented in a crystal teardrop-shaped decanter, cradled in an exquisite silver spiral, and corked with an elegant silver stopper that carries the marquetry of the Viking warrior. The bottle is packed in a polished black lacquer box and comes with a book that both tells the story of King Christian’s harmonious reign and of Highland Park’s Viking roots.
