Description

In 2011, the founders of Wolfburn Single Malt Whisky travelled to Thurso in Caithness, the most northerly town on the British mainland, in search of the old Wolfburn Distillery, originally founded in 1821.

After 150 years of neglect, what they found of what was once one of the largest whisky producers in the country, was a pile of old stones. The only thing that remained was the flow of water that once fed the mash tun and stills all those years ago.

The team were convinced that if the water was still there, then the whisky could be too and in May 2012, the purchase of the land was finalised.

By January 2013 the new Wolfburn Distillery was complete and on Burns Night, a cask of Wolfburn Whisky - the first for nearly 150 years - was laid down in Thurso.

The worts are fermented for roughly 75 hours then the spirit is double distilled, slowly, first through the wash still and then through the spirit still.

It is once the distillation is complete that the whisky begins to transform; matured in two different types of casks, 20% is matured in firstfill Spanish Oloroso sherry hogsheads and 80% in first-fill ex-bourbon barrels.

The casks are stored using traditional dunnage methods; on their side, bung up, on stows, never higher than three.

At the end of the maturation process, the casks are brought together to create an exceptionally smooth and perfectly balanced dram.
