Valfather is the final single malt whisky in a series of three special edition Viking Legend releases. Inspired by Odin, the mightiest and most complex of the Norse gods, who’s associated with wisdom, sorcery, poetry, death, wolves, and ravens. An intriguingly complex figure... It only follows that his whisky should be just as complex…
Winning Gold in the 2020 World Whisky Awards, Valfather is our most peated whisky to date and matured entirely in our finest refill casks to ensure that all that peat is balanced with subtle layers of flavour and character. You’ll taste sweet apple, fragrant pear, crème brûlée, toasted cedarwood and smoked paprika, hence the term ‘stickysmoke’.
The packaging for the whole series was created by Jim Lyngvild, a Danish designer and artist of international renown, whose great grandfather 36 generations ago was Ragnvald Eysteinsson, the first Earl of the Orkney Islands.
We’ve been crafting our award-winning whisky at the Highland Park Distillery in Kirkwall, Orkney, since 1798. Age, experience and respect for tradition may define our whisky, but it’s Orkney that sets it apart. Something magic happens here and the result is the wild harmony of flavours found in our whisky.
