ABV : 46.8%

Volume : 700ml

Valknut is the second in our Viking Legend series, celebrating our rich Nordic ancestry here on Orkney. The word translates to ‘knot of those slain in battle’. Admittedly, it’s pretty heavy stuff. The symbol of inter-linked triangles represents the transition from earthly life to heavenly life – ‘heavenly’ being the operative word when it comes to this special release: in the 2019 San Francisco Spirits Competition, Valknut won Double Gold.

Created using a higher proportion of our local peated malt and matured in a combination of sherry seasoned European and American oak casks and ex-bourbon casks. Valknut walks a fine line between the aromatic spiciness of cloves and cracked black pepper, and the patisserie sweetness of toasted vanilla and creme brûlée, hence the term, Custard Bonfire. 

The packaging for each release in the Viking Legend series was created by Jim Lyngvild, a Danish designer and artist of international renown, whose 36th great grandfather was Ragnvald Eysteinsson, the first Earl of the Orkney Islands.
