Legendary musician, Sir Rod Stewart, and business partner Duncan Frew are celebrating their first International Whiskey Day (or ‘whisky’ depending on where the spirit comes from) following the launch of their blended scotch brand, Wolfie’s Whisky in June 2023. 

The ‘Cockney Scotsman’ & Wolfie’s Whisky 

Wolfie’s Whisky was established by the ‘Have You Ever Seen The Rain’ singer as a celebration of his early rock-n’-roll career and his “more mischievous days”. The brand also pays tribute to Stewart’s Scottish heritage (his father was a Scotsman), and his self-identified ‘Cockney Scotsman’ persona. 

The blended scotch whisky is produced at the Loch Lomond Distillery, with single malt and single grain (wheat) combined and then matured in American ex-bourbon casks. This maturation process is a nod to the USA, where Stewart has achieved great musical success with 16 top-ten singles. 

The Wolfie’s Whisky brand was recently launched in the USA and is available throughout California, Nevada, and Florida. Online Wolfie’s Whisky purchases can be shipped to all US states except: Alaska, Arkansas, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, South Dakota, Tennessee & Utah.

Wolfie’s Whisky’s First International Whiskey Day 

Today (March 27th, 2024) marks Wolfie’s Whisky’s first International Whiskey Day. Every year, whisk(e)y fans from around the globe come together to celebrate their favorite tipple. Wolfie’s Whisky is marking the occasion with some carefully curated cocktails using its signature blend. 

Raising a glass to Wolfie’s Whisky’s milestone, Rod Stewart said “Cheers, mate! We can’t think of a better subject to celebrate than whisky this year”. 

Speaking about Wolfie’s Whisky’s global success since its launch in 2023, Duncan Frew remarked “Wolfie’s was inspired by Rod’s seminal rock ‘n’ roll roots, starting with his early hell raising days with the Faces, so we did the natural thing and put Wolfie’s on the road with Rod as he tours the world. Fans throughout the US, UK, Europe and Asia come in for a great Rod Stewart concert and we leave them with a great whisky”.
