List of products by brand OLD PULTENEY
In 1826, when James Henderson founded the lost northely distillery on the British Mainland, there were plenty more fish in the sea. The Highland town of Wick was the centre of a ‘Herring boom’, becoming the largest and wealthiest fishing port in Europe. Barrels of silver and gold left the harbour of Wick (there were no roads). The herrings were silver, the gold was Old Pulteney Single Scotch Whisky.
Matured for 15 years, this is our most balanced and smooth single malt. Balancing two different sides of the flavour spectrum, this single malt marries these perfectly, whilst also reflecting our coastal home and its unwavering influence. On one hand, this is an intense single malt, yet at the same time, it is truly balanced.Spice and sweetness unite in this naturally rich amber whisky to celebrate rich flavours, yet lighter, more refreshing coastal notes show another side of this single malt.
Matured for 18 years, this is indulgent and spicy thanks to the casks selected for maturation. Taking its character and colour entirely from the casks within which it has been nurtured, this is a deeply warming whisky. The indulgence extends through this single malt with chocolate and spice defining the character but allowing for the influence of more vibrant zesty flavours.
For a quarter of a century, casks of this rare expression of Old Pulteney Single Malt Scotch Whisky breathed the invigorating sea air of the Caithness coast. Sheltered from a fast-changing world by the darkened calm of a distillery warehouse, the spirit mellowed at its own steady pace, echoing the reassuring rhythm of its hometown port. Aged firstly in American oak, its spicy sweetness was later granted depth and colour by casks of Spanish oak. Elegant and charismatic, this wonderful whisky embodies both Wick’s spirit of endurance and Pulteney Distillery’s devotion to its craft.
Old Pulteney Flotilla 2008 is matured in American oak ex-bourbon barrels. Over the years, the casks gently absorbed the northern sea breeze, giving the whisky its smooth, complex flavours and coastal characteristics. It is little wonder that Old Pulteney is known as ‘The Maritime Malt’.
