Old Pulteney

7th May 2012

Op p o pack blog detail

As you know, here at Old Pulteney we are incredibly proud of our sea-faring heritage. That's why we were absolutely delighted when we were asked by P&O Ferries to create a limited-edition gift pack for their 175th anniversary celebrations this year.

P&O Cruises' own nautical roots date back to 1837 when the company's founding fathers, Arthur Anderson and Brodie McGhie Willcox, were awarded the British Government contract for a weekly mail service to the Iberian Peninsula.


Only 1,000 of the celebratory gift packs – featuring 12 year old single malt specially selected by our Distillery Manager Malcolm - will be available exclusively on P&O Ferries voyages from April 2012. The whisky is presented in a suitably nautical way, in a traditional cream canvas sailing bag, specially printed with P&O’s retrospective maritime flag.

Malcolm tells us the malt is dry, medium bodied and smooth, faintly salty with a slight spicy note, and a long-lasting warm finish. The perfect present from one Ancient Mariner to another - Happy Birthday P&O!
