Distillery Focus – Wolfburn at Hard To Find Whisky – Scotch Whisky News

THE FIRST AND LAST WHISKY  DISTILLERY ON THE SCOTTISH MAINLAND

In 1821 William Smith founded a distillery on the outskirts of Thurso and named it Wolfburn after the watercourse it drew from, “burn” being the Scots word for stream or small river. Despite great success in its early years, the distillery suffered greatly after the war and by the 70s it was recorded on the first ever Ordnance Survey map in ruins.

In 2011 planning began to reinstate the Wolfburn brand and distillery. By 2013 Shane Fraser from Glenfarclas and Iain Kerr from Glenlivet have joined and the distillery is once again in operation. 150 years after its inception and just a short walk from the original distillery site. Since then, they have released  a number of well-received expressions and won a plethora of coveted awards.
