With traditional warehouses exposed to the invigorating sea air coming in from the North Sea, Old Pulteney captures the taste of the sea in every drop of its liquid gold.
From subtle coastal chords to clearer salty notes, the taste of Old Pulteney whisky says a lot about the role and influence of the region.
Old Pulteney has announced its new line NAS-Travel-Retail in summer 2013. The colourful packaging is to remind of lighthouses from the Scottish highlands around Wick.
This design is packaged with a bright blue label and a tube and shows the lighthouse of Noss Head, from which the whisky was inspired.
The lighthouse was built in 1849 by Robert Arnot and named after the Old Norse word "Snos". It represents the nose-shaped promontory on which it is located.
The Old Pulteney Noss Head Lighthouse Bourbon Casks matured in ex-Bourbon barrels.
