Old Pulteney Single Malt Whisky
A strange name for a distillery overlooking the ‘cold grey sea of Cathness’, you might well think. The name was bestowed on the recomedation of no less a person than Thomas Telford (the ‘Father of Civil Engineering’), who designed ‘Puleneytown’, a model village, and the port of Wick.
Old Pulteney describes itself as ‘The Maritime Malt’ and was once known as ‘The Manzanilla of the North’, on account of its key-note dry and salty taste. It is a perfect aperitif.
