About Wolfburn Northland Single Malt Scotch WhiskyThe 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 stream 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 Northland is the first modern release from this distillery. Aged onsite in primarily American oak quarter casks with a smaller portion aged in ex-sherry, the result is a smooth, warming whisky, the first chapter in the history of Wolfburn. Wolfburn Northland earned a Gold medal at the World Whisky Awards 2017 and Double Gold Medal winner, FiftyBest 2018.

Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)
Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
