The most northerly of Scottish whisky distilleries, Highland Park was founded in 1798 and is one of the most highly regarded single malts in the world, the great Michael Jackson calling it, "The greatest all-rounder in the world of whisky." and Paul Pacult awarded it, "The Best Spirit in the World." in 2005. The unique peat of Orkney gives the whisky a distinctive heathery sweetness.

The first in a new range of four whiskies from Highland Park called The Valhalla Collection.

This first release is Thor, God of Thunder and alleged architect of the Cliffs of Yesnaby on the west coast of Orkney Mainland.

The packaging is pretty unique in that it's a wooden frame styled after the prow of a Viking longboat which is hinged to allow easy access to the bottle.

52.1% ABV / 75cl

Bottle Number: One of 23,000 bottles released
