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

This third release is Freya, Goddess of Beauty and War. By the old myths she is the ruler of Fólkvangr, where half of the fallen soldiers go to their afterlife. The other half goes to Odin's hall.

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.

Age: 15 years old

51.2% ABV / 70cl

Bottle Number: One of only 19,000 bottles released
