Edrington has added a new permanent expression to its Highland Park Scotch whisky range.

Highland Park Viking Heart is a 15-year-old single malt featuring a high percentage of first-fill European oak Sherry seasoned casks. The Iteration also contains liquid from first-fill American oak Sherry seasoned casks.

The whisky is packaged in a ceramic bottle, created in partnership with UK-based Wade Ceramics to represent the earthenware vessels Highland Park used to be stored in at its Orkney distillery.

“Our insistence on specially-constructed Sherry casks delivers a richness of flavour,” said master whisky maker Gordon Motion.

Viking Heart is the latest Highland Park whisky to carry a name that evokes Norse history. Other single malts in the portfolio include Valfather, Valknut and Valkyrie.
