Old Pulteney running dry in U.S.

It was only back in October that I noted whiskey guru Jim Murray had named Old Pulteney 21 Year Old the top whiskey in the world, in his definitive 2012 Whisky Bible.

So, it came as a bit of a surprise when International Beverage USA today announced the company has virtually run out of the Scotch single malt in the U.S.

"No matter how many hours we work into the night, we simply cannot make the whisky age any faster until it's fully matured to perfection," master distiller Malcolm Waring said in a statement.

International Beverage U.S. President Pat Graney said he expects the next batch to be available in the U.S. in March 2012.

"We knew Old Pulteney 21-Year-Old was a standout product, but we never dreamed it would literally run out," he said.

Consumers can stay up to date on availability of the Pulteney 21 on its Facebook page.
