Old Pulteney Aged 10 Years Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky (1000ml)
Volume: 1000ml ABV: 40% Age: 10 Years Old Country: Scotland
Founded in 1826 by James Henderson at the height of Wick’s celebrated herring boom, the Pulteney Distillery is one of the most northerly on the British mainland. At a time when road links to the town were yet to be established, the distillery was dependent on the sea for its supply of barley and for the shipping out of its malt whisky. Wick became known for the barrels of silver (herring) and gold (whisky) which left the port in vast numbers. The distillery itself has an absorbing history, with its unique stills defying convention to this day. The wash still, in particular, is a source of fascination to visitors due to the absence of a ‘swan neck’. Legend has it that when the still was delivered it was too tall for the still house and the manager simply decided to cut the top off! The Old Pulteney bottle now incorporates a bulbous neck to reflect the shape of the stills.
Matured wholly in air-dried, hand-selected ex-bourbon casks, Old Pulteney 10-years-old is traditionally crafted using techniques that other distillers have long abandoned before being bottled at 40% ABV in 1L bottles.
