According to the legends of our Viking ancestors, the might eagle which sits at the top of Yggdrasil, the sacred tree represents wisdom and knowledge. The beating of its wings creates the winds that sweep across Earth.
Here, on Orkney, those earthly winds sweep across our island home too, reaching speeds of over 100 miles per hour in winter. No trees survive such onslaught so our moorland peat is woodless, but rich in fragrant heather, producing the characteristic aromatic smokiness of our whiskey.
16 YEAR OLD WINGS OF THE EAGLE celebrates our wild island climate. Its spicy and elegant character reveals a sophisticated combination of flavors, layered as intricately as the feathers of an eagle’s wing.
