Wolfburn Wins Gold!
Wolfburn whisky has won a top award in its first ever competition. Entered into the Hong Kong International Wine & Spirit Competition, Wolfburn’s “Northland” expression won the coveted Gold Award in the category “Single Malt Scotch Whisky – No Age Statement.”
"The whole Wolfburn team is absolutely delighted,” enthuses Shane Fraser, distillery manager. "Right from the launch of our inaugural release back in February people have been loving our whisky – and now we’ve won our first award. It’s a very special day for everyone at the distillery.”
The IWSC judging panel is made up of master distillers from around the world and, as might be expected of such a prestigious award, competition is fierce, with dozens of entries in all categories. Winning the award means that Wolfburn’s Northland bottles will now be adorned with a gold medal on the shoulder – something that buyers everywhere recognise as a mark of quality.
“Wolfburn has always been about quality,” says Shane. “We maintain the highest standards in everything we do, with the simple aim of making the best possible single malt whisky. Winning the gold award means we must be getting it right!”
Wolfburn’s Northland expression is made via a long and gentle production process, which creates a sweet, smooth spirit. This is matured in top-quality ex-bourbon quarter casks, which impart a mellow flavour to the spirit, making a wonderfully easy-drinking and enjoyable whisky. “I’ve enjoyed it from the very first dram,” says Shane, “and I’m incredibly pleased that it’s already gaining worldwide recognition.”
