Old Pulteney 21 Year Old Single Malt Whisky, which is distilled at the Pulteney Distillery in Wick, 30 minutes from the Port of Scrabster has been voted 2012 World Whisky of the Year by the prestigious "Jim Murray's Whisky Bible."

Scoring a record-equalling 97.5 points out of 100, it is only the third time that a single malt has ever won the prestigious award, and Pulteney Distillery is just the second Scottish distillery to do so.
