Pulteney distillery lies on the Southern side of Wick, it is Scotland's most Northerly mainland distillery.

At one time Wick was deemed to be such an unruly place that it suffered from a period of prohibition. Ironically, Pulteney was still producing its whisky throughout the period of enforced abstinence.

The whisky has been dubbed the "Manzanilla of the North" due the salty character that has been picked up during the maturation.
