Edrington's Highland Park Valknut

Available - From June

Location - 15 global markets

Price - GBP58 (US$76) per 70cl bottle

Edrington has launched the second in a series of limited, 'special editions' from its Highland Park single malt.

Valknut follows last year's launch of Valkyrie and is matured predominantly in American sherry-seasoned oak casks with a slightly higher phenolic level compared to the earlier release. It also has a smokier edge from the use of a small amount of barley from the distillery's home island of Orkney.

The Viking Legend series is inspired by Viking history and mythology - Scotland's Orkney islands were once owned and ruled by Denmark and Norway. 

The third and final release in the series will be Valfather, due for launch next year. The packaging for the range was designed by Danish designer Jim Lyngvild.
