The distillery is scheduled to kick off this years Highland Whisky Festival on Friday 22nd September, and the three distinct tours the distillery is offering are destined to be a special highlight of this years Highland Whisky Festival, dedicated to showcasing Highland distilleries.

With prices ranging from £30 to £175 per person, these three whisky experiences offer an immersive journey through every step of Old Pulteney's renowned distillation process, beginning with the first droplet of water drawn from Loch Hempriggs and concluding with the captivating final dram.

The Distillery Exclusive Tour provides an introduction to Old Pulteney, its remarkable distillation processes and how its coastal location influences its world-class single malts, concluding with a tasting session of three outstanding expressions: Old Pulteney 12 Year Old, Old Pulteney Pineau des Charentes and Old Pulteney Distillery Exclusive. Guests will also receive a complimentary branded rocks glass to take home.

The Festival Fleet Tour delves deeper into Old Pulteneyís history. Experienced tour guides will accompany guests through the distillery, uncovering the traditional whisky-making methods the distillery still uses to this day. This tasting includes the same three drams as the Distillery Exclusive tour, however, guests will also be treated to the prized Old Pulteney 25 Years Old, an Old Pulteney Bourbon Single Cask and Old Pulteney Sherry Single Cask, three exceptional expressions which are testament to The Maritime Maltís enduring spirit. Departing guests will also receive a memorable parting gift: an Old Pulteney crystal malt blender glass.

The Malt Master Experience delivers an experience like no other. Distillery Manager Malcolm Waring will personally conduct a whisky masterclass, hosted in a private warehouse. VIP guests will enjoy an intimate whisky tasting, sampling the very oldest drams from the Old Pulteney core range, Old Pulteney 15 Years Old, Old Pulteney 18 Years Old and the exquisite 25 Years Old. Guests will also enjoy the recently launched Distillery exclusive, available only at the distillery and Old Pulteneyís online store. Malcolm will conclude the session with a series of truly special whiskies, including a hand-selected Old Pulteney Bourbon Single Cask, Old Pulteney Sherry Single Cask, and finally one of Malcolmís personal favourites, selected from his own private collection. Guests will also receive a crystal malt blender glass as a final farewell.
