Wolfcraig Distillery unveils new location near Stirling

The whisky distillery will be built at the Craigforth campus

 

Wolfcraig has announced that it has signed a deal with the Ambassador Group. They have found another home for the planned whisky distillery, which we reported on last year already, that is conveniently located and will be integrated into an advantageous infrastructure there on the Craigforth campus.

“The masterplan for the Craigforth Campus is extremely exciting and will complement our ambitious plans for Wolfcraig. We are looking forward to being located alongside other dynamic businesses and amenities as this development progresses,” said John Moore, Director of Wolfcraig Distillery. With its location west of Stirling near junction 10 of the M9 with access to the A84, the site is easy to reach.

The new construction project has been estimated at £15 million. Founder is Michael Lunn, former chairman and chief executive of Whyte and Mackay Group, co-directors are John Moore and Jamie Lunn. "The Nose" Richard Patterson could be won as master blender.

In addition to the distillery itself with an annual production capacity of 1.5 million liters, a visitor center with a restaurant, bar and tasting room is also to be built. The current press release does not reveal when the start of construction and the opening of the distillery can be expected.
