Together with THE DARK, THE LIGHT shares the story of the noble Viking warriors who are the ancestors, of their contrasting island seasons and of the intense balance of the whisky.
Light and dark are concepts that exist in opposition, yet together create a perfect balance. One cannot exist without the other; as one appears, the other disappears; together they create something greater than themselves – in nature, a perfect, continuous cycle.
In THE LIGHT– a special release of only 28,000 bottles – they celebrate spring and summer in Orkney; a time to emerge from their winter’s hibernation, renewed and refreshed with a spring in their step, ready to embrace the warm bright days of summer. Presented in a beautifully embossed green glass bottle, the serpent dragon design takes its inspiration from the great Norse sagas and embraces both the high sun of the summer solstice and the low sun of the winter solstice – the polar opposites of their island seasons – while the runic writing reflects the ancient carvings of their Viking ancestors which can still be seen today in Orkney.
