Highland Park takes its name from the High Park area on the outskirts of Kirkwall Orkney, where, in 1798, Magnus Eunson began distilling illegal whisky. A local smuggler, Magnus would hide this forbidden spirit under the pulpit of the church.
Einar (I-n-ar) Sigurdsson was the joint Earl of Orkney from 1014 until his death in 1020.
Relentless and strong in his rule, Einar was easily identified by his axe, which was sharp and brutal, reflecting his character. Document in the Orkneyinga Saga, as “A hard and successful fighting man“, Einar was one of four sons of Sigrurd who jointly inherited the earldom of Orkney. After the eldest brothers death, Einar seized his share of the islands and installed himself as the overall ruler of Orkney. This action deeply upset his youngest brother Thorfinn.
