Old Pulteney 12 Y

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.

Today, ‘The silver darlings’ have long gone but the Pulteney Distillery still produces ‘unashamedly excellent’ Single Malt Whisky - Tangy, dry and with a mineral salted spiciness that evokes the rugged, windswept character of the far north.

It is the unique history of the town its people and their distillery that makes Old Pulteney the Maritime Malt.
