Vardbjärg where fire beacons been lit

VARDBJÄRG SHAREHOLDERS EDITION IV

Vardbjärg. A historic place in the southeast of Gotland, where a fire beacon has been lit for thousands of years to warn the islanders of approaching danger. A suitable name for the fourth Isle of Lime Shareholders Edition. A taste sensation, lighting a spark during our darkest season, spreading warmth all year round. Vardbjärg is matured on toasted and charred American Virgin Oak, giving the whisky its deep bronze color and a strong fiery character. Dedicated to you, keeping the flame alive while enjoying this ecological, handcrafted whisky from the island Gotland.
