product Details

Old Pulteney Dunnet Head 1 Litre / Travel Retail Exclusive

This is part of Old Pulteney's Lighthouse Collection, released in the Autumn of 2013.

The Pulteney distillery in Wick was built in 1826, and for a long time was the northernmost distillery on the Scottish mainland. Acquired by John Dewar & Sons in 1924, the distillery was quickly forced to close down in 1930, as Prohibition in its hometown was enacted to attempt to curb drunkenness among its maritime society. When it re-opened in 1955, the majority of its output was reserved for blending, although Gordon & MacPhail were licensed to bottle a single malt by Allied Breweries (later Allied Domecq). Its single malt was known as "Old Pulteney" on their labels, and this tradition remained when Inver House, who acquired the distillery in 1995, released Pulteney's first distillery bottlings.

Dunnet Head is named after the lighthouse located near John O'Groats, just north of Loch Long.
