Wolfburn Kylver Series 3rd Release
Wolfburn distillery is the most northerly on the Scottish mainland, located in the town of Thurso. The original Wolfburn distillery was built in 1821 by William Smith, and was operational for around 30 years before closing. The current Wolfburn distillery was built as close to the site of the original as possible, just 350 metres from its ruins. Distilling began there in January 2013.
The Kylver series is named after an old burial stone, discovered to have one of the earliest examples of the runic alphabet on it. Series 3 features the rune, "thurs," which meant either thorn, or giant.
This edition of the Kylver was matured in a combination of ex-bourbon barrels and hogsheads.
Bottled in 2017, the label features the specially commissioned Thursiaz in Repose by Ian Giles.
