Collection: Wolfburn

Wolfburn Distillery is a Scotch whiskey distillery in Thurso, Caithness, Scotland. After production ceased in the 1860s, a new distillery of the same name was opened in 2013.

Wolfburn Distillery was established in 1821 by William Smith just west of the town of Thurso in Caithness. The distillery was quite large for its time and operated as a successful commercial enterprise for decades, passed down through generations of the Smith family. It is thought to have ceased production in the 1850s, but the exact date is disputed. The distillery appears on the first Ordnance Survey map of the area, dated 1872, marked as ruins. The cause of its demise is unclear - few remains of the original distillery and no known photographs. However, records of its annual whiskey production can be found in tax returns, which indicate that it produced around 125,000 liters in 1826 - making it the largest distillery in Caithness at the time

Wolfburn is the northernmost whiskey distillery in mainland Scotland, producing single malt Scotch whisky. Production started in early 2013. In February 2016, the first whiskey was launched globally in March 2016 and won multiple gold medals in international competitions.
