The Orkney sky is ever changing - the dramatic and cool weather stands in strong contrast to the beautiful flora of the island. Here is the heather covering Hobbister Moor, where the peat for the whisky production is cut.

Hobbister Moor is a beautiful hilly and heathery landscape overlooking the ocean, most often under a big dramatic sky. Three to four men spend a few months a year cutting...

"Taking these photographs during evening twilight, myself and my assistants almost got bitten to death by midges, while distillery worker, Erik, just stood there with a totally stoic expression."

"Touring Orkney with Highland Park's Senior Brand Ambassador Martin Markvardsen made it very easy to imagine the days when the Vikings ruled in these parts.

A former Danish Champion boxer, Martin’s quiet yet powerful demeanour fits right into the rugged landscape of Orkney. Despite very cold winds on the day we were shooting, I managed to get Martin to show off his tattoo by the old Viking...

"Evening twilight became my favourite time to shoot the distillery and visitor centre. The golden lights came on and reflected on the wet stones. The whole scene took me back centuries and reminded me of Hogsmeade Village in Harry Potter"

Full concentration during the spirit distilling process. Nicky had a zen-like energy around him.

"Highland Park is produced in the very same place it all started in 1798. The facilities and a lot of the processes have not changed since then and it is one of only a handful of distilleries that still retains traditional floor maltings, turning each batch of malt by hand, which is a physically demanding process.

A big part of a visit to the distillery at Kirkwall is experiencing what the...

We're on location today. Can anyone tell us where we are? #VikingSoul
"I have travelled the world for the last 25 years and seen a lot of amazing sights.

Flying on a two seater airplane along the cliffs of Yesnaby has got to be one the most beautiful and scary things I have experienced. Luckily the pilot had 40 years of experience flying on Orkney and made the experience feel a lot safer."

Danish Rock Photographer Captures Life on Orkney - Highland Park

Einar has been crafted as a tribute to one of the most feared and ruthless Vikings. Driven by a heady mixture of peat smoke and American oak casks, the result is a whisky of bold complexity brought together with the addition of some broody spiciness.
Catching the last of the powder?

Highland Park stopped distilling for the duration of the Second World War from 1939. Its war effort was confined to the mash tun being used as an enormous bath for some of the 60,000 troops stationed on Orkney.

That was the year in which HMS Royal Oak was sunk by a German submarine in Scapa Flow and Sir Winston Churchill visited the distillery. When offered a cup of tea upon his arrival, he...
