Old Pulteney has announced the launch of their oldest and most exclusive whisky. The 30 Years Old single malt was distilled and matured in American white oak at the most northerly distillery on the UK mainland and embodies the wind-swept and rugged character of the far north.

Old Pulteney’s senior brand manager, Iain Baxter said:“The age contributes a huge amount of complexity to the whisky.

“It has all the hallmarks of Old Pulteney; spice and green apples,and sweet vanilla and coconut notes from the American Oak. But unusually for such an old whisky there’s a remarkable touch of tropical fruit on the nose – some people have picked up guavas and mangos.”
