Located on Orkney off theÂ north of the Scottish mainland, Highland Park is one of Scotlandâ€™s most famous distilleries. One of the few remaining distilleries to malt a proportion of their own barley, they use local heathery peat from the wind-swept island. It often gives Highland Park expressions aÂ unique, subtle smoke.Â

The official story behind the Fire-Ice series is as follows:
â€œIn a fittingly chilly reflection of Nilfheim, one of the nine worlds of old Norse mythology and the birthplace of ice, frost and fog, Ice Edition is presented in a glacial blue bottle.
â€œExquisitely designed to reflect shards of glittering ice, the bottle is encased in a wooden mountain-like cradle and sealed with a wooden stopper.
â€œA special release of only 30,000 bottles, it delivers intense aromas of cool fresh pineapple and ripe mango sorbet, underpinned by a frosty kick of root ginger, reflecting all the majestic powers of the great Ice Giant, Ymir.â€
