An Old Pulteney 18 year old distilled in 1970 and bottled in 1988, imported to Italy by Sestante. A 20 year old (1968-1988) with the same label and the age written in mauve also exists, although it was bottled at 43% ABV. Founded in 1977 in Parma by Ernesto Mainardi, Sestante is an Italian bottler and importer. Formerly working for Co. Import, Mainardi began working for himself after meeting George Urquhart of Gordon & MacPhail, from whom he began importing bottlings. He launched his own selections in 1985, in two versions, one cask strength and the other reduced. Sestante and Silver Seal, the other business Mainardi founded in 2000, were sold in 2010 to Massimo Righi, owner of Whisky Antique.
