Highland Park, the highly regarded and often awarded single malt Scotch brand, just dropped its ICE Edition, a 17-year-old limited edition whisky inspired by Norse mythology. The majestic spirit celebrates the Viking roots of the brand’s home in the rugged Orkney Islands of Scotland, and is priced at $300 per bottle.
Limited to only 3,915 for the entire U.S., it comes in a blue tinted, bespoke glass decanter designed to evoke the distinctive sharpness and coolness of the mythical, magical Ice Realm of the Norse gods. It comes encased in a mountain-shaped wooden cradle with an accompanying wooden stopper.
“This 17 year old single malt has a classic Highland Park flavor dynamic," Global Brand Director, Jason R. Craig, "with soft spicy notes complement and intertwine with creamy vanilla hues, providing a balanced, long finish – a truly harmonious whisky to savor.”
The ICE Edition will be followed by a FIRE Edition in 2017 and stems from the distillery's recent Valhalla Collection in homage to the four legendary inhabitants of Asgard – Thor, Loki, Freya and Odin.
Here's looking at you, gods....
