Old Pulteney: stressing maritime links

The single malt Scotch whisky revealed details of its Stories of the Sea national tour, run in partnership with the Daily Telegraph and Sunday Telegraph. The events will feature storytelling sessions from internationally renowned adventurers, followed by an interactive whisky tasting. Tickets are available through the newspapers’ websites.

The first of these events, held at the London Boat Show, featured maritime adventurer Jasper Shackleton, a relative of explorer Ernest Shackleton. Shackleton shared his story of the re-enactment of the voyage of Captain William Bligh, who sailed from Tofua to Timor with a crew of 17 in a self-built open boat.

Future speakers include Atlantic adventurer Tom McClean, BBC’s Coast presenter Mark Horton, SAS-trained survival expert Martyn Helliwell, TV presenter and wildlife expert Chris Packham and Alvaro de Marichalar, the Spanish aristocrat who travelled from Rome to New York on a jet ski.
