The Carnegie Whisky Cellars and Wolfburn Distillery announce limited edition Poppyscotland whisky

The Carnegie Whisky Cellars and Wolfburn Distillery are excited to announce a limited edition single malt whisky to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War. A total of 1918 bottles are being produced by Thurso-based Wolfburn Distillery and will be sold exclusively from the Distillery and through the Carnegie Whisky Cellars in Dornoch. Both companies have agreed to give £5 to Poppyscotland for each bottle they sell through the joint 1918 Poppy Pledge, which will raise a combined total of £9,590.


The bottles will be available from both businesses on October 10th 2018 for £75, and will be sold on a strictly first-come-first-served basis.

Shane Fraser, manager of Wolfburn Distillery commented: “This is a project that we’re all very proud of – Poppyscotland is an excellent cause, and we’ve crafted a truly special dram for the occasion. It’s made from lightly peated spirit, which has been subtly married with a small proportion of whisky matured in sherry casks, so it’s a lovely mix of sweet aromas and smokey flavours. The initial reaction has been hugely positive.”

Michael from the Carnegie Whisky Cellars added, “Everyone we have spoken to about this project has been very excited to see the final product. Since we opened in 2016, Wolfburn’s whisky has been a fantastic seller for us and the Distillery has been very supportive of what we are doing. On two previous occasions they have provided the Dornoch Whisky Festival bottling, which was also split between our two companies. We are excited for what is to come from this partnership and glad to be doing this project with Wolfburn and to help raise money for the great cause that is Poppyscotland.”
