Founded in 1826, the Old Pulteney Distillery lies in Wick – the heart of ‘Pulteneytown’.
Try the definitive award winning expression – Old Pulteney 12year old, matured wholly in air-dried, hand-selected ex-bourbon casks for a dry taste with spicy notes and a sweet long-lasting finish.
The Old Pulteney 17year old – wholly matured in Spanish wood ex-sherry casks, predominantly Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso. A sweet taste of apples and pears, slightly woody with a hint of butterscotch.
Also matured in ex-bourbon casks with spirit from ex-Oloroso sherry cask, the Old Pulteney 21year old uses a second fill American oak and Spanish oak first fill.
Voted 2012 World Whisky of the Year by the prestigious “Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible” Old Pulteney 21 Year Old is full bodied with traces of fruits (apples and pears); slightly fragrant with spicy overtones.
And the Old Pulteney 1989 – a vintage which is peaty and smoky, matured in hand-selected American oak ex-bourbon barrels, which previously held heavily peated malt. With notes of vanilla, coconut and oranges and an indulgent long-lasting finish.

Coravin Limited Edition Model Two Elite Wine System
The new limited edition Coravin Model Two Elite – a revolutionary Wine System which uses ground-breaking technology and allows users to pour wine without removing the cork in three eye-catching colours – red, gold and silver.
Coravin keeps the cork in place, whilst the accompanying gas capsule inserts inert argon gas into the bottle. Wine is pushed through the needle, whilst preventing any oxygen from entering the bottle meaning expensive wines can be enjoyed by the glass while the rest is savoured for next time.
RRP: £279 – Available at Harrods, Hedonism Wines, Berry Bros. and Rudd, Uncorked and Fortnum & Mason www.coravin.co.uk
