The Northern Highlands
OLD PULTENEY (1826)

Wick, Caithness. Licentiehouder: The Pulteney Distillery Company Ltd. Het eigendom van Inver House.
Gesticht door James Henderson in 1826, is Pulteney de meest noordelijk gelegen distilleerderij op het vaste land van Schotland.
Sir William J. Pulteney, directeur van de Britse Visserij vereniging is naamgever van de stad.
Wick was in die tijd een heel belangrijke vissershaven.
James Henderson had aanvankelijk een distilleerderij iets meer landinwaarts, maar verhuisde die naar een plek, meer aan de kust gelegen.
De familie Henderson bleef tot 1923 eigenaar van Pulteney, maar ze zagen zich ge-dwongen de distilleerderij te verkopen als gevolg van de crisis jaren na de eerste wereldoorlog.
James Watson & Co, Ltd, ook de eigenaar van Parkmore en Ord werd de nieuwe eigenaar.
James Watson & Co, Ltd werd een paar jaar later overgenomen door John Dewar & Sons, die vervolgens fuseerden met John Walker en in 1925 samen gingen met de Distillers Company Ltd. (D.C.L). en Pulteney werd gesloten.
Pulteney bleef gesloten tot 1951 toen R. Cumming, een notaris afkomstig van Banff en al de eigenaar van Blablair sinds 1947, de distilleerderij kocht.
Robert Cumming verbouwde de distilleerderij, maar vond geen afzet genoeg voor zijn whisky en verkocht de beide distilleerderijen aan Hiram Walker, nu Allied Domecq.
Allied Domecq ging door met het verbouwen en verbeteren van Pulteney, de ketels (twee) werden vervangen door één grotere en de moutvloeren werden buiten gebruik gesteld.
In 1995 koopt Inver House zowel Balblair als Pulteney.
Old Pulteney heeft als bijnaam de Manzanilla of the North. Het is een heel snel rijpende whisky.
Het koelwater komt van Hempriggs Loch, het proceswater is leidingwater. Old Pulteney kan ongeveer 900.000 liter spirit per jaar produceren. De Mash tun is 38.440 liter. De zes Wash backs zijn elk 23.200 liter.
De Wash still is 16.100 liter en de Spirit still 13.200 liter en ze worden met stoom verhit.
De distilleerderij kat van Pulteney heet Kipper.
William Johnstone Pulteney ( 1729 - 1805 )
Both the whisky and the town are named after Sit William Pulteney, a prominent figure and influential M.P. and once Governor of the British Fisheries Society which had commissioned Thomas Telford to lay out the new township in 1803.
In 1790 William Johnstone Pulteney also endowed the first Chair of Agriculture in Britain at Edinburgh University and nominated Dr. Andrew Coventry to be the first Professor. ( 1790 - 1830 ).

Pulteney's Sensational Still:
Aside from its unique taste, Pulteney has another claim to fam - the unusual shap of one of its stills.
There are two stills at Pulteney, one for each of the distillations needed.
The wash still, which was originally purchased from McTaggert of Campbeltown was slightly too large for Pulteney distillery.
The manager of the distillery, wa that time, felt there was only one way to resolve this problem, cut th still top off!
Although one can never strictly indentify all the factors which lead to a malt's style, such are the number of variables, iy is highly problable that the slightly unusual shape of this wash still contributes to the depth of character present in this single malt.

1824 James Henderson sticht de distilleerderij en geeft de distilleerderij
de naam Pulteney, naar Sir William Johnstone Pulteney, directeur van de
Britse Visserij Vereniging
1920 James Watson is de nieuwe eigenaar

1951 Pulteney wordt weer opgestart, na te zijn overgenomen door Robert Cumming

Established in 1826 in the town of Wick, Pulteney Distillery is the most northerly distillery on the 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 fishing industry is no longer part of daily life in Wick but Pulteney Distillery continues to operate using the same traditional distilling methods first introduced in the 1800's to create one of the finest Highland Malts available.
Pulteney is one of the most unique Scotch whisky distilleries. The wash still has no swan neck and it is thought that when the original still was delivered, it was to tall for the stillhouse and the manager insisted it was 'cut off. The spirit still resembles a 'Smuggler's kettle' and both undoubtedly contribute to the distinctive character of the whisky.
Once distilled, the spirit is filled into a selection of specially selected bourbon and sherry casks and laid to rest in the distillery warehouses, until the distillery manager decides the optimum time for bottling each od the casks.
Throughout the years of maturation, the casks have taken time to absorb the Northen Scottish sea breeze and as a result, Old Pulteney Single Malt Scotch Whisky is often referred to as 'The Manzanilla of the North'.

Our Maritime History

One of the oldest distilleries in Scotland, the Pulteney Distillery was founded in 1826 in Wick
by James Henderson, during the town's 'herring boom'. At the time, the town was only accessible by sea; barley was shipped into Wick and the whisky shipped out. Many of the original distillery
workers were also herring fishermen

The herring industrie was vital to Wick, which became the busiest fishing port in Europe, with the
fleet reaching its peak of more than 1000 boats in the 1850s and 1860s

At this time it was said that you could walk across the harbour from one pier to another without
getting your feet wet

With over 7000 workers arriving in the town each herring season, Wick became a wild, lawless
place where rioting was common. With the Reverend Thomson claiming that more than 500 gallons of whisky were being drunk in the town each day, and troops and gunboats being called
in to keep the peace, the authorities imposed prohibition. Although prohibition was not lifted
until 1947, the Pulteney Distillery continued to produce whisky in the town, even though it was
by law, dry. In 1997, 50 years to the day after the repeal of prohibition, Old Pulteney 12 Year Old
Highland Single Malt Whisky was launched

A Unique Distillery

The most northerly distillery on the British mainland, Pulteney Distillery is one of the few distilleries to be named after a person; Sir William Johnstone Pulteney, who gave his name to
Pulteneytown in Wick. Pulteneytown was built (along with the harbour and bridge) by the world -
famous engineer Thomas Telford using money confiscated from the Jacobite chiefs after Bonnie
Prince Charlie's failed revolution.

Pulteney Distillery is itself one of the most unusual malt distilleries, with the wash still having
no 'swan neck'. It is thought that when the still was delivered it was too tall for the stillhouse
and the manager simply cut the top (of the still) off. This, combined with the distillery's
windswept location and the use of traditional 'worm tubs' to condense the spirit, is credited
with contributing to a malt that has been described as "unashamedly excellent" by leading
whisky writer Jim Murray

All Old Pulteney is bottled in a unique bottle, the shape of which mirrors that of the still at
Pulteney Distillery. Aged for 30 years, this expression features single malt whisky matured in
ex - bourbon (American oak) wood. It is neither coloured nor chill - filtered

Established in 1826 in the town of Wick, the Pulteney Distillery is the most northerly
on the 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.

During the 19th century, Wick became the capital of the "Herring Boom"which saw the town transformed from a remote Highland village into "the greatest fishing station
In the world" with more than 1000 drifters harboured there. The fishing industry was
dominated by the "Herring Drifter"fishing boats, originally sail boats, with the first
recorded steam drifter built in Wick in 1869. All boats from Wick are indentified by the
letters "W K " in their registration. At the peak of the "Herring Boom" steam drifter numbered more than 1,800 of which only two seaworthy examples remain intact today.
Place.


The fishing industry is no longer part of daily life in Wick but Pulteney Distillery in the heart
the the town, continues to operate using the same traditional distilling methods first
introduced in the 1800's to create a astonishingly complex single malt, with a rich mineral -
salted spiciness that is the very essence of this remarkable place.

ISABELLA FORTUNA W K 4 9 9

waters of the north east for 86 years. In 1919 she was fitted with a 15 hp Kelvin engine

Fortuna. In 1976 she was purchased and restored and became the Isabella Fortuna
