Old Pulteney Distillery
Pulteney Single Malt Whiskey
Pulteney Distillery was established by James Henderson in 1826 in the coastal town of Wick, Caithness. Pulteney is a Highland malt whisky distillery equipped with worm tubs to cool the spirit from its single pair of particularly short stills. Thomas Telford designed the lade which originally carried all the water into the distillery, and a fragment of his stone channel survives in the back yard. The Old Pulteney 12 Year Old, 17 Year Yld and 21 Year Old form the core range supported by Clipper and Navigator in the non-aged bottling series.
