About the distillery
Pulteney Distillery, Region Highland, Located in Wick, Caithness was founded in 1826 by James Henderson who named the distillery after Sir William Pulteney, The distillery was originally dated back to the 1800’s but the location of the original distillery was neither practical or efficient with few roads, The distillery was moved to give easy access to ship his produced Malt whisky, It was also great for customers who often passed during the herring season when the town’s population over doubled, Historian sources are let to believe during the herring season over 3000 liters were purchased at inn’s per week with the majority being Pulteney whisky, In 1924 the distillery was acquired by John Dewar & sons but in 1930 the distillery closed its doors due to local enforced laws, Pulteney was re-built by new owner Robert Cumming in 1951 however his ownership was short lived as Hiram Walker purchased the distillery in 1955, Harim Walker sold the distillery to Inver House Distillers in 1995.
