The original Wolfburn Distillery was founded in 1821 by William Smith, on the outskirts of Thurso in Caithness, Scotland. The distillery took its name from the watercourse it drew from, “burn” being the Scottish word for stream or small river. As Smith invested heavily in the distillery, it became a significant enterprise for the region — tax records for the 19th century show it was the largest producer of malt whisky in Caithness. The distillery was kept in the Smith family until at least the 1850s, when records become scarce and it’s estimated that production began to cease (a survey map from 1972 depicts the distillery in ruin).

After 150 years of neglect, a group of private investors stumbled upon the old Wolfburn Distillery in May, 2011 — seeing massive potential, the investor began to rebuild the distillery from the ground up. The new Wolfburn Distillery, which, by law, must use water sourced from the same steam used centuries ago, is crafting unpeated malt whisky from a blank canvas through old-fashioned pot-still distillation; no automation, no rush, and a lot of care.

Wolfburn Christmas Special 2021 is a showcase of the distillery's signature smooth and easy-drinking style. It's a festive single malt Scotch that is immensely giftable to boot. It has spent 6 years in a combination of first-fill oloroso sherry casks and bourbon barrels, resulting in a deliciously sweet 92-proof expression with festive notes of raisins, dates, dark chocolate, vanilla, and ginger.
