Old Pulteney

Old Pulteney

Old Pulteney er Skotlands nordligste destilleri på fastlandet, beliggende ved Wicks historiske havn.
Old Pulteney er grundlagt i 1826 af James Henderson, og husets maltstil kaldes "den maritime malt" med henvisning til smag og beliggenhed.

Old Pulteney regnes med rette for en af Skotlands allerbedste singlemalts, og i Jim Murrays Whisky Bible 2012 kåres den 21 årige Old Pulteney til:
* Verdens bedste whisky (alle kategorier) med 97,5 point ud af 100.
* Skotlands bedste whisky.
* Bedste singlemalt (alle kategorier)
* Bedste singlemalt i klassen 16-21 år

The Old Pulteney distillery in Wick is the most northerly distillery on the Scottish mainland. It is a windswept location, where the uncompromising landscape of the Highlands meets the North Sea, and the waves crash against the granite walls of the harbour.

The extreme location and unique stills have resulted in a distinctive flavour, bursting with the power and subtlety of the sea. Old Pulteney is the embodiment of history, people and place: It is the Genuine Maritime Malt.
