Wolfcraig Whisky Distillery Opens New Stirling Location

Scotch focused Wolfcraig Distillery recently announced it signed a new land deal with Ambassador Group to develop a new Scotch Whisky distillery and visitor center in the Craigforth Campus in Stirling in Scotland.

The £15 million development will sit in the outskirts of Stirling and lies on the site of the local former Prudential headquarters. 

“Our new home has better links to public transport and is much closer to the heart of Stirling, making it easier for visitors and tourists to access the distillery,” John Moore, Director at Wolfcraig Distillery said, in a prepared statement. “We are keen to be an integral part of Stirling’s hospitality and leisure sector and so moving to this site makes a lot of commercial sense.”

The distillery plans to create a sustainable mixed-use destination for regional employment, leisure and residential purposes.

“The masterplan for the Craigforth Campus is extremely exciting and will complement our ambitious plans for Wolfcraig,” Moore said. “We are looking forward to being located alongside other dynamic businesses and amenities as this development progresses.”

Wolfcraig Distillery will create a new whisky experience which will incorporate a distillery, an interactive, education-focused family visitor attraction, private tasting room and 180-cover bistro restaurant and bar.  The new distillery will tap into Stirling’s rich heritage as well.

The distillery will have the capacity to produce up to 1.5 million litres of spirit per year and will focus on producing premium Wolfcraig Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky in addition to a range of other associated spirits. It will be be helped along by what’s said to be “a team of industry experts including celebrated Master Blender Richard Paterson, renowned Master Distiller Ian Macmillan, Dr Alan Rutherford OBE, former Production Director at Diageo and Iain Lochhead, former Bacardi UK Operations Director.”
