Old Pulteney single malt scotch whisky and US Sailing recently announced the inaugural Old Pulteney Maritime Heroes Award.

The two brands are partnering to express appreciation to the men and women in sailing communities across the country for their humanitarian achievements. Friends and families are encouraged to nominate an unsung hero to give them the opportunity to receive the recognition they deserve, whether for charitable giving, community advocacy, sailing education or the countless other generous acts.

“As Old Pulteney is the Genuine Maritime Malt, we feel it is important to celebrate those individuals who significantly contribute to the vibrancy of the maritime lifestyle,” International Beverage USA president Pat Graney says.

Finalists will be selected by Old Pulteney and US Sailing representatives. A public vote will then be held on the website and the 2012 Maritime Hero will be announced and honored at a gala event in January at US Sailing’s 2013 National Sailing Programs Symposium in Clearwater, Fla.
