Matured in sherry seasoned American oak casks, THE LIGHT is a distinctive and vibrant whisky with a delicious sweetness.
This special release of 28,000 bottles shares the story of the noble Viking warriors who are our ancestors, of our contrasting island seasons and of the intense balance of our whisky.
It is a celebration of spring and summer on Orkney; a time to emerge from our winter’s hibernation, renewed and refreshed with a spring in our step, ready to embrace the warm bright days of summer. Presented in a beautifully embossed green glass bottle, the serpent dragon design takes its inspiration from the great Norse sagas and embraces both the high sun of the summer solstice and the low sun of the winter solstice – the polar opposites of our island seasons – while the runic writing reflects the ancient carvings of our Viking ancestors which can still be seen today, here on Orkney.
Matured for 17 years in European oak sherry seasoned casks for a distinctive, deep flavour.
Limited edition of 28,000 bottles only.
The whisky is presented in a bespoke bottle drawing inspiration from the ancient Norse sagas and an oak frame which has two circles etched on the top and bottom. This circles represent the intense balance of the contrasting Orkney seasons and the influence they have on Highland Park whisky.
