Centuries ago, long before Orkney became part of Scotland, it belonged to a vast Viking Kingdom. Magnus Eunson, who founded Highland Park in 1798, was a direct descendant of those early Viking pioneers who settled on the island, these Vikings became part of Orkney, leaving their mark on its landscape, culture and people.
VIKING SCARS pays tribute to the islands ancestors’ enduring influence on Orkney and the value they placed on skilled craftsmanship and a steadfast work ethic.
Did these Viking pioneers shape the character of the distillery’s whisky? Without a shadow of a doubt.
Nose - Soft heathery peat.
