We are delighted to announce the launch of three new additions to the Old Pulteney range, ‘The Lighthouse Collection’. This selection of fine single malt Scotch whiskeis that have been developed exclusively for Travel Retail the Lighthouse Collection will be available from airport duty free stores and other travel retail outlets from the end of August 2013. The series features three distinctive new expressions which have been inspired by our maritime routes and celebrate three historic lighthouses situated near our costal distillery in Wick – Noss Head, Duncasby Head and Pentland Skerries. Each expression is presented in colourful packaging and offers different maturation angles, making them the perfect premium gift or coveted collectible for whisky lovers worldwide.
Packaged with a vibrant blue label and tube, the design features an image of the Noss Head lighthouse which the whisky is inspired by. Built in 1849 by Robert Arnot and named after the Old Norse word ‘Snos’, the lighthouse represents the nose-shaped headland where it is situated. Matured in American Oak ex bourbon casks the malt inside has a full bodied, sweet and spicy taste with hints of coconut, lemons and oranges and a long-lasting finish.
Featuring a coral red label and tube, the eye catching packaging depicts an image of Duncansby Head lighthouse. Situated near to John O’Groats at the very northern tip of Scotland, the lighthouse protected a dangerous part of the Pentland Firth where the Atlantic waters flow into the North Sea. Matured in ex American bourbon and ex Spanish sherry casks, the whisky has a sweet full bodied taste with notes of honey, chocolate and oranges.
Encased in striking purple packaging, this design features images of two lighthouses of the same name. Developed with input from renowned Scottish engineer Robert Stevenson, the Pentland Skerries lighthouses were built in 1794 on the uninhabited Pentland Skerries islands off the far north eastern coast, en route to Orkney. The whisky is matured in Spanish ex sherry casks and has a sweet, full-bodied taste with hints of raisins, spices and chocolate.
