Old Pulteney launches 35 year old single malt

Old Pulteney Highland single malt Scotch whisky has added an exceptionally rare 35 Year Old to its range, of which only 450 cases will be rolled out globally with a RRP of £500 per 70cl bottle.

Non-chill filtered at 42.5%abv, the new expression has been matured in American ex-bourbon and Spanish ex-sherry casks selected by distillery manager Malcolm Waring.

The eye catching detail and design of the limited edition reflects the brand’s maritime heritage, and includes a stunning wooden box with porthole revealing the unique Old Pulteney bottle that carries the classic herring drifter, which has become a symbol of the brand.

Founded in 1826 at the height of Wick’s herring boom, Pulteney Distillery is one of the most Northerly distilleries on the Scottish mainland. It is this unique maritime heritage that gives the whisky its identity as the ‘Maritime Malt’. A long-held favourite tipple for whisky enthusiasts, many say they can taste a faint hint of the sea in Old Pulteney malts, thanks to the Distillery’s windswept location and close proximity to the North Sea.

The launch of the 35 Year Old follows the success of Old Pulteney’s 40 Year Old single malt which was released in 2012. Old Pulteney senior brand manager, Margaret Mary Clarke comments: “Old Pulteney 35 Year Old is a world class expression and we are delighted to add another high age, limited edition to our existing portfolio.

“From its eye catching packaging to its superior taste, the new malt is a true reflection of Old Pulteney’s outstanding quality and craftsmanship. We are confident that it will take its place amongst the best luxury whiskies available today and cement our position as one of the UK’s top ten single malts.”
