Wolfburn, located in Thurso, Caithness, is the most northerly whisky distillery on the Scottish mainland. Originally founded in 1821, it was one of the biggest in Scotland in its day. Today, Wolfburn has been re-awakened under the guiding hand of master distiller Shane Fraser and is once again making truly exceptional single malt scotch whisky. It’s all done the traditional way: by hand, using only the finest ingredients, and without haste.
This lightly peated whisky is made from malted barley infused with smoke during the drying process. The flavour imparted by the smoke is a reflection of Wolfburn’s history – the original 19th Century distillery was largely fired by peat. Gentle distillation is followed by maturation in our purpose-build warehouses. The result is a smooth and rounded whisky.
