Summer's here (believe it or not!) and we thought that those of you lucky enough to be heading off on holiday might like to hear about our new limited edition UK Travel Retail exclusive - WK217 Spectrum.



This is the third and final expression of our extremely well-received series of single malts related to extraordinary boats from Wick. The inspiration for this one came from WK217 'Spectrum', built in 1920 and one of the first Wick drifters to use a pioneering way of fishing called Anchor Seine Netting. She was also used during World War II for harbour service duties.



WK217 Spectrum is a full bodied, sweet and spicy malt, with traces of vanilla, green apples and raisins. On the palate the initial sweet hints of citrus fruits and sherry lead to a complex and well balanced long lasting finish.



Old Pulteney WK217 is World Duty Free Group’s ‘Malt of the Month’ for July and is currently on sale only in select World Duty Free and World of Whiskies shops at British airports. So be sure to keep your eyes peeled for this perfect poolside tipple!
