Established in 1826 in Wick, Pulteney Distillery is the most northerly distillery on the Scottish mainland and at that time was only accessible by sea. The barley was brought in by sea, the whisky shipped out by boat and many of the distillery workers were also employed as fishermen. Sadly the herring fishing industry is no longer part of daily life in Wick but Pulteney Distillery continues to operate, distilling one of the finest Highland malts available.

Pulteney is now owned by Inver House Distillers Ltd, they bought both the Balblair and Pulteney distilleries in 1995. It's single malt is known as Old Pulteney, but the majority of the whisky produced at the distillery goes into Inverhouse blends such as Pinwinnie Royal, MacArthur's and their Old Pulteney whisky liqueur.

The quality, price and availability of the 12 Year Old make it an essential malt for any whisky lover. In fact if you where to taste this whisky blind you would be forgiven for mistaking it for a more well known refined malt.
