A release exclusive to Amazon Uk the Viking Tribe was released in 2018 as an addition to the core Highland Park range. Created to celebrate togetherness and shared experiences, and the symbol on the bottle is an interpretation of the knotwork style of 13th century Viking art found in the Urnes Stavkirk in Norway, which means 'together as one'.
About the distillery
Highland Park Distillery, region Island, located Kirkwall, Orkney was founded in 1798 by Magnus Eunson who originally ran the distillery illegally but sources were led to believe that he paid duty on his first bottle in 1798 with the distillery obtaining a full licence in 1826. Magnus was a butcher and priest whilst operating illegally would use barrels covered by large blankets to support coffins who he claimed held the body of someone who had recently passed away. The distillery is the most northern in Scotland. Highland Park was purchased by Highland Distillers in 1937 (acquired by Edrington in 1999). In the 1950's Highland Park released their first distillery bottling. Highland Park is a globally know brand with a great reputation.
