About Martienello:

It all started with the Highland Park Thor as a gift from my wife in 2012. 

The packaging, representing a Viking boat, was great, cool, innovative and also contemporary.

I kept the bottle closed knowing this is the first bottle of the Valhalla collection of four bottles.  I wanted to have them all!!

Shortly after when visiting the local liquor store, I found and bought the HP Saint Magnus 12y, with its beautiful, also innovative, wooden box with inscription explaining the history of Saint Magnus. I became curious and started to deepen myself further in HP.

I love how HP brings back the Viking history and other mythologies with its symbols and stories in his bottles.

From that moment, the collective fever grabbed me :-).
