Awarded World Whisky of the Year for their 21-year old (2012), Old Pulteney Distillery is a must see to truly embrace the essence of Wick. Having thrived during Wick’s herring glory, Old Pulteney was one of the 50 pubs that were involved in serving 500 gallons of Whisky a day!
With whisky roots dating back to 1821, the Wolfburn Distillery embraced the former glory of Thurso’s whisky. Established in 2012, Wolfburn’s modern approach to distilling Single Malt Whisky is an intriguing addition to visit while wandering through nearby town Thurso.
