    Old Pulteney Single Malt Whisky

    Pulteney distillery was founded by James Henderson in 1826. It is located in Wick, a fishing town in north-east Scotland, and is the northernmost distillery on mainland Scotland; in its formative years Pulteney was only accessible by sea. Many of the workers at the distillery were also employed as fisherman and the town of Wick became known for the whisky and herring which left its port in huge numbers. Similar to Oban, Pulteney is one of the few distilleries which is located in the centre of a town.

    The history of Pulteney has been a fairly peaceful one; ownership of the distillery remained with the Henderson family until 1920, and then changed hands multiple times until it was taken over by Distillers Company Ltd in 1925. They opted to close the distillery just five years later and it was not resurrected until 1951, under the ownership of SMD. There were a few more changes and another closure before Pultenety opened properly again in 1961. The distillery has been under the ownership of Inver House Distillers since 1995.

    The 12 year old expression of Old Pulteney is the flagship single malt in the Inver House portfolio and has experienced significant growth in popularity in recent years. Independent bottlings from this distillery are relatively rare, but some have been made available through companies like Douglas Laing and Cadenhead’s.
