A couple of new booze releases hot from the wire...
Highland Park LokiThe second release in The Valhalla Collection, a set of four whiskies that take inspiration from the Nordic gods, Loki continues what Thor began; a malt designed around the personality traits of an individual. Loki is a 15 Year Old Single Malt, matured in both traditional Spanish sherry casks as well as heavily peated casks.
Highland Park Loki, a limited edition Single Malt bottled at 48.7% ABV, comes housed in the same unique and award-winning wooden frame as Thor, echoing the fearsome contours of a traditional Viking long ship.
Loki will be available in select whisky retailers, at the Highland Park distillery and on the Highland Park website at a SRP of $249. For more information on Loki and the Valhalla Collection, visit www.highlandpark.co.uk.
