US Sailing, the national governing body of the sport, and Old Pulteney, a leading single-malt Scotch whisky brand, formed a new partnership that names Old Pulteney as a sponsor and the "Official Scotch of US Sailing."

The sponsorship agreement includes direct financial support for the organization, including support for select US Sailing Adult National Championships and Speaker Series events. Old Pulteney will be present for onshore social events and cocktail receptions during these programs.

"We are excited to have Old Pulteney on board with US Sailing," executive director Jack Gierhart said in a statement. "Their support will help us expand our Speaker Series, strengthen our adult championships and enhance the social aspect of these events."

Old Pulteney was founded in 1826 and is crafted at the Pulteney Distillery in Wick, Scotland. The brand has a longstanding association with the sea and is known as the Maritime Malt.
