This stunning expression tells the story of the realm of the Fire Giants and their epic battle against the Gods to rule the world. According to legend, Surtr was an evil Fire Giant who ruled the Fire Realm. He would sit at the edge of the Kingdom, defending the land holding a burning sword, which shone brighter and hotter than the sun.
Highland Park FIRE Edition packaging has been designed to bring to life the tales of Viking mythology. The exquisite crimson red coloured glass was specially commissioned to represent the fierce and molten world of the Fire Giants. The bottle is encased in a distinctive black wooden cradle with accompanying black wooden stopper.
The front of the bottle features a Norse symbol representing the creation of the world, which they believed was protected by a serpent named Jormungandr, biting his own tail.
FIRE Edition is a special release of 28,000 bottles and will roll out Internationally throughout December and into 2017.
