Wolfcraig Distillers

Stirling, Scotland
Find your perfect gin

The city of Stirling has seen kings and queens, knights, Vikings and battles. History and folklore can be seen and felt in the city and surrounding area, which has helped shape Scotland over the centuries. It’s said that one such event was when a horde of Norse invaders was set to attack a Celtic garrison on a dark winter’s night. A sleeping wolf cub was awoken when its paw was stepped on, breaking the silence and setting of howls from the wolf pack. It was this startling call that alerted the garrison. A bloody battle ensued, which saw the Celts fend off the invaders. Today, the battlefield is known as ‘Wolfcraig’, and the wolf has long been considered the “Protector of Stirling”.

Wolfcraig Distillers was co-founded in 2017 by John Moore and Jamie Lunn with support from the late, much-missed and highly respected former CEO of Whyte & Mackay, Michael Lunn. The leadership team includes spirits industry veterans Ian MacMillan and Richard Paterson OBE. The long-term plans for the business include the construction of a new distillery and visitor centre designed to put innovation and sustainability at the heart of everything the distillery does.
