New whisky launches this summer
Sir Rod Stewart has unveiled Wolfie’s Whisky, a blended Scotch whisky that embodies his reputation as “the Cockney Scotsman” and pays tribute to his Scottish heritage and cheeky chappie image. Designed to reflect Stewart’s rock ‘n’ roll heritage with subtle nods to Americana, Wolfie’s was inspired by the legendary musician’s early hell raising days with the Faces.
“Wolfie’s is a rascal of a thing and with just a sip the whisky takes you back to the good old days. Fine-tuned and perfectly balanced, Wolfie’s is a delight both over ice and mixed into a favorite cocktail,” Stewart shares. “It’s a fine tipple, whether you’re partying with friends, celebrating a Celtic win or reminiscing with family. For me, Wolfie’s depicts the carefree behavior of my more mischievous days and the excitement of what life still has to offer – let the good times roll!”
Wolfie’s Blended Scotch Whisky (40% ABV) is wonderfully balanced with flavors of warming cinnamon, fresh vanilla and baked apple. The whisky has a delicate taste of sweet peat and pears in syrup before finishing with candied citrus peels and a gentle oak spice.
With its unique blend of rock ‘n’ roll roots, Americana and Scottish heritage, Wolfie’s is bringing something new to the Scotch whisky market. Distilled on the banks of Loch Lomond by an expert team with decades of whisky-making know-how and an all-Scottish team behind the brand, Wolfie’s truly has Scotland at its heart.
Referencing the opening track from Stewart’s 1991 album Vagabond Heart, the lyrics “Rhythm of My Heart” are emblazoned on the base of the bottle. Stewart’s recording of the song was a nod to his own Scottish heritage having adapted the melody from the traditional folk song, “Loch Lomond.”
Wolfie’s will be available to buy online for £35 from June 19th with early access via wolfiesiscoming.com. They’ll also be in with the chance of finding one of 1,000 bottles of Wolfie’s that have been signed by Stewart.
With the initial limited run of bottles marked as first releases, Wolfie’s will initially be available to buy online across the UK and in Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, The Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland. It will also launch in America in July as Stewart embarks on his North American tour.
