Exclusively available to buy from Pulteney Distillery and Old Pulteney’s online shop, Old Pulteney Distillery Exclusive. This limited-edition expression is a tribute to our coastal hometown on the Caithness Coast which shapes the character of our whisky.
Our Coastal Home
Our connection to our maritime past is as pertinent today as it was over 190 years ago. Created as a homage to our coastal home in the Scottish Highlands, Old Pulteney Distillery Exclusive beautifully intertwines notes of citrus and toffee with the classic briny undertone that Old Pulteney is renowned for. An ABV of 53%, slightly higher than that of our core collection, allows the delicious flavours of caramelised fruit, nutmeg and honey to come to the fore.
Matured by the Sea
To create this limited-edition single malt Scotch whisky, Distillery Manager Malcolm Waring carefully hand-selected his favourite casks to create a delicious flavour profile before keeping a watchful and expert eye over the whisky as it matured at Pulteney distillery in Wick. The whisky was first filled in American oak casks before further maturation in French oak, pulling through deep, sweet notes with a subtle spice.
With traditional warehouses exposed to the invigorating sea air blowing in off the North Sea, Old Pulteney captures the taste of the sea in every drop of its liquid gold. From subtle coastal chords to more defined salty notes, the flavour of our whisky says much about the role and influence of our home.
A product of its inspiringly distinctive and lively coastal location, Distillery Exclusive reaffirms that Old Pulteney truly is The Maritime Malt.
Amber with lighter copper hues
Rich with deep sweetness. Notes of caramelised apple, warm custard and cinnamon spiced pastries. Towards the end, we see fresh rye bread with bright orange citrus, stone fruits and delicate oak dryness.
Deep sweetness and spice. Toffee, nutmeg and caramelised popcorn envelop the palate and continue to develop into rich blossom honey, roasted almonds and creamy vanilla. Spices and honey linger on with a welcome tannic dryness in the form of dried fruits.
