The perfect bottle for under their Christmas tree.

Thurso is the northernmost town on the British mainland. The first Wolfburn distillery was born on the site in the early 1800s. But by 1872, production had ceased. In 2011, Single Malt industry veterans Shane Fraser and Lain Kerr revived the namesake far northern spirit. They broke ground in May of 2012 and had the first completed buildings by September, with production starting the following year. They haven’t looked back — developing a range of Single Malts and periodic small-batch special releases.

Wolfburn Christmas Special 2021 Edition is a festive Single Malt. It was aged for six years in a combo of first-fill Oloroso Sherry hogsheads and Bourbon barrels. Clocking in at 46% ABV, this lovely dram releases a flavorful harmony of raisins, dates, dark chocolate, vanilla, ginger, and Sherry tones on the full-bodied palate. It’s like having your mouth full of Christmas cake, but better?

Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
The new Wolfburn stands next to the Wolf Burn stream. But an original Wolfburn, located 350 miles away, was once a behemoth of the 1800's, cranking out 125,000 liters per year according to tax documents from the era.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
