London, 16th October 2017. - On 12th September World of Whiskies unveiled an exclusive, limited-edition Old Pulteney single malt whisky at Edinburgh International Airport. The award winning World of Whiskies stores - a Dufry brand - partnered with the Wick-based distillery Old Pulteney to create a 32-year-old single malt, exclusively available in limited quantities.

Old Pulteney 1985 is non-chill filtered and has been matured in an American oak ex-Bourbon cask, before being bottled in 70cl bottles at 51% abv. The expression is described as having “elegant fruit notes of apricots and pears”, with a “gentle balance of honey sweetness” and a “slight chocolate undertone”. On the palate, it is “smooth with sugary honeycomb, slightly floral with fresh citrus and creamy chocolate”.

Old Pulteney 1985 was available exclusively at the World of Whiskies store at Edinburgh International Airport, priced at £275.00. As a limited edition just 168 bottles were available and each bottle was presented in a cream canvas sailing bag, printed with the cask number and details of the Edinburgh International partnership. The unique presentation of the bottle paid homage to Old Pulteney’s rich seafaring heritage. This whisky broke all records for an exclusive at Edinburgh airport, by selling out within just three weeks!

David de Miguel, Global Head of Liquor at Dufry commented: “It’s always exciting to collaborate on the launch of such a unique product and we are delighted that, as a result of our close partnership with Old Pulteney and Edinburgh International Airport, we were able to offer our customers this special whisky.”

James Bateman, Director, Global Travel Retail at International Beverage added: “We were thrilled to partner with World of Whiskies and Edinburgh International Airport to create this exclusive Old Pulteney. Edinburgh International Airport is Scotland’s busiest airport and staff in the World of Whiskies store are important ambassadors for Scotch whisky. They help to connect the world to Wick, in Caithness, where the Pulteney Distillery has been making very fine malt whisky since 1826.”
