Old Pulteney takes drinkers on a journey with 13 Years Old travellers exclusive

    • Old Pulteney, known as The Maritime Malt, has released its latest expression, and is currently available across UK airports.
    • Initially matured in American oak casks, the whisky has been finished in Spanish oak, offering beautiful flavours of coconut, citrus, vanilla custard and candied almonds.
    • Old Pulteney’s distillery is situated on the northerly-most shores of Scotland, in Wick on the Caithness Coast.
    • Like every Old Pulteney expression, the 13 Years Old showcases a wonderful coastal influence that comes from the North Sea air that is synonymous with the brand.
    • Old Pulteney, The Maritime Malt, has unveiled a new 13 Years Old expression to its Global Travel Retail range of Single Malts, available to those travelling this summer.

    Joining Old Pulteney’s travel retail collection, which includes a 10 Years Old and 16 Years Old, Old Pulteney 13 Years Old boasts a medium to long finish and showcases a beautiful hint of sea salt that comes from the coastal air carried by the North Sea.

    Initially matured in American oak casks, the whisky was then finished in Spanish oak casks, giving complex flavours of coconut, citrus, rich vanilla custard and candied almonds. These notes, combined with the coastal air influence and a toffee aroma, results in a mouth-wateringly delicious salted caramel flavour.

    To create Old Pulteney 13 Years Old, Distillery Manager Malcolm Waring carefully hand-selected the casks to create a unique flavour profile, before keeping an expert eye over the whisky as it matures. 

    The 13 Years Old, which is now available in UK airport duty free stores, is the perfect pre or post-holiday treat for whisky lovers. The expression will be rolled out across other European airports including Warsaw, Paris and Amsterdam later this summer, before Singapore, North Asia and India later this year.  

    Malcolm Waring, Pulteney Distillery Manager said: “I’m so pleased to introduce Old Pulteney’s 13 Years Old to our range. The expression truly embodies Pulteney Distillery’s signature coastal style, with a deliciously distinctive flavour that comes from being lovingly matured by the sea. 

    “Our 13 Years Old is a wonderful dram that takes travel lovers on a journey of their own – starting with tropical flavours of coconut and citrus, reminiscent of sunny holidays, before making way for sweet notes of vanilla, toffee and candied nuts. I’m really looking forward to sharing this expression with whisky drinkers across the continent.”

    Old Pulteney 13 Years Old is available in a 1L bottle,  has an ABV of 43% and retails at £65. The expression is available in UK Duty Free stores before being rolled out to Europe in the coming months.
