Inver House Distillers’ Old Pulteney 1997 single cask

Category - Spirits, whisky, Scotch, single malt, 50.2% abv

Available - Since 5 September

Location - The UK, in the Global Travel Retail channel, exclusively from Edinburgh airport in Scotland

Price - GBP198 (US$260) per 70cl bottle, limited to 204 units

Inver House Distillers has released a limited edition 1997 iteration of its Old Pulteney single malt Scotch whisky. The single cask expression is being stocked exclusively as Dufry Group's World of Whiskies outlet in Edinburgh airport.

A total of 204 units of Old Pulteney 1997 single cask will be released, with the individually-numbered bottles each packaged in a 'sailcloth' white canvas bag.

The display in Edinburgh airport will be supported by the presence of an American oak ex-Bourbon barrel on passengers' approach to World of Whiskies. The liquid for Old Pulteney 1997 was matured in the barrel after it was distilled just over 20 years ago.

Last month, Inver House announced plans to revise the core range for Old Pulteney, to include a no-age-statement expression.

According to recent research from just-drinks and The IWSR, the single malt segment faces a challenging few years ahead: "First of all,"the report states, "navigating the period of short supply without alienating consumers through the injudicious use of no-age-statement; second, making sure the market will be ready to absorb extra malt supply when it comes on stream in a decade and more's time."
