Following VALKYRIE and VALKNUT, our third and final release, which launches later this month around the world, completes a trilogy that celebrates our rich Viking heritage, this time through one of the best-known stories from Norse mythology – the journey to Ragnarök, the battle at the end of the world.
Orkney was once part of a vast Viking kingdom and the mythology of our ancient past was woven into our character and culture for hundreds of years, long before Highland Park was founded in 1798. From those Viking warriors who settled in our islands, we inherit integrity, bravery and independence. Today, we deliver those values here in our distillery, rather than on the battlefield.
Throughout the Viking Legend series we’ve worked with Danish designer, Jim Lyngvild (a genuine modern-day Viking Soul!) to bring the packaging vividly to life. Jim’s work is inspired by the ancient picture stones from Stora Hammars in Gotland, Sweden.
We’ll reveal all in our next Inner Circle newsletter so watch this space!
