Wolfburn is the most Northerly distillery on the Scottish mainland. Originally founded in 1821, all of Wolfburn’s Single Malt whiskies are made the traditional way: without haste, by hand, and with a huge emphasis on quality. The results are superb, and Wolfburn’s special releases are consistent winners of international spirits competitions.

Wolfburn’s smooth and easy-drinking character stems from the way it is made. Long fermentation is followed by slow and gentle distillation to makes a pure, smooth spirit. Maturation takes place in purpose-built warehouses just a short distance from the sea.

Northland

The smooth and warming flavors present in Northland come from the unhurried way in which the spirit is made, and from the maturation, which takes place in American Oak quarter casks. Matured and bottled on site, Northland represents the first chapter in the history of Wolfburn.

Langskip

Our strongest expression takes its name from the Norse word for longship – the Viking vessels that once dominated the Caithness coast. Sleek, smooth, purposeful, and strong, the legacy of these ships surrounds the Wolfburn distillery – in addition to settlements and burial sites, Wolfburn’s home town of Thurso was named by the Vikings in honour of the god Thor.

Langskip is crafted from unpeated spirit, matured for up to seven years in first-fill Bourbon barrels. Wolfburn’s trademark soft, sweet spirit shows off all its wonderful depth, being bottled at an undiminished 58%. Remarkably, despite its strength, the spirit shows no sign of excess heat but instead allows the drinker to experience a beautiful panoply of flavors.
