International Beverage has announced a second release of Old Pulteney Single Malt limited-edition 35 years old, following the success of its first release in 2014, which sold out globally.
Only 1,254 bottles will be available through specialist outlets around the world, with a recommended retail price of £515 per bottle.
The second Old Pulteney 35 Year Old release is matured in ex-American bourbon and ex-Spanish oak casks selected by distillery manager, Malcolm Waring.
Each bottle reflects Old Pulteney’s uniquely shaped stills. The liquid is held in a bottle similar to the first 35 year old release but with refreshed colours chosen to emphasise the Spanish oak influence on its flavours.
The bottle and label were designed by Bill Mather at Full Circle Designs.
It is encased in an engraved wooden box featuring Old Pulteney’s herring drifter symbol, and is naturally coloured and non-chill filtered at 42.5% ABV.
Old Pulteney senior brand manager, Margaret Mary Clarke comments: "We are delighted to launch the second release of Old Pulteney 35 Year Old Single Malt, building on the success of our first release which was in high demand amongst whisky lovers around the globe. It is an exceptional expression, fantastically balanced and a true representation of the skill and quality of the Old Pulteney distillery team."
