Today, Scotland’s most northern-based whisky distillery Highland Park revealed the new bottle design of its core selection. Paying homage to the viking heritage of the island of Orkney where Highland Park is located, the 12yo has been re-branded as Viking Honour while the 10yo does now go by the monicker of Viking Scars. At a later point, the 18yo will follow. From July 2017 onwards, it will bear the byname of Viking Pride. The distillery pointed out that only the presentation of their acclaimed standard range has changed. The price and, most important, the whisky itself remains untouched. To learn more about Highland Park’s new look and feel, check out the video below (originally hosted on the distillery’s YouTube channel).
Besides the relaunch of the three expressions mentioned above, Highland Park has recently also released a new special edition. The 10-year-old Rebus30 was released in celebration of the 30th anniversary of the bestselling Inspector Rebus series by Scottish novelist Ian Rankin. You can now win one of 5 bottles of this strictly limited whisky as well as 5 signed copies of the latest Inspector Rebus novel on the distillery’s Facebook fan page. Good luck!
