MEET THE PEOPLE BEHIND WOLFBURN
Iain joined the whisky trade at a young age after a brief period in engineering and has already spent a quarter of a century learning and refining his craft. Achieving a Distinction in the General Certificate of Distilling along the way he previously worked with Balmenach, Allt a Bhainne, and Glenlivet distilleries. Knowledgeable, enthusiastic and practical, Iain provides the pivot around which the Wolfburn team operates.
Innes is a local lad from just up the road, who joined Wolfburn back in 2016. After completing his apprenticeship Innes has taken on numerous additional responsibilities, first as a production shift manager, and now as Iain's deputy.
Head of Brand
Paul has played a crucial role in Wolfburn's brand development and management from the outset. He is the one we must appreciate for everything, including the website, the packaging, and more.

Distillery Visits Manager
Charlie first joined Wolfburn as visits manager in 2014. From the days of tour by appointment only, witnessing the first ever bottle sale and now taking daily tours he has shown thousands of people around Wolfburn from all corners of the globe whilst fielding tens of thousands of questions. Always smiling and immensely knowledgeable he will make any visit to Wolfburn, be it as an expert or a first time whisky drinker, a trip to remember.
Jenn joined Wolfburn in 2019 and has moved up to manage all the distillery administration, with daily tasks including running the office, managing stock levels, dealing with online sales, and ensuring that all orders are correctly packaged and promptly dispatched to customers all around the world.
Max has been with Wolfburn for several years, having completed his three-year apprenticeship in 2021. Early starts, mashing, distilling, warehousing, bottling and casking are all part of Max’s duties - and in addition he is responsible for maintenance and repair of much of the distillery's mechanical equipment.

Bottling Hall Manager
Shaun is a recent addition to the Wolfburn team, having joined in late 2022. Reporting to Iain, he has rapidly made a positive impact, which has proved serendipitous as the volume of customer orders is ever increasing, and with it comes increased pressure on bottling. Shaun continues to oversee improvements to the bottling line, including the installation and commissioning of state-of-the-art semi-automated equipment.
Nick has recently commenced a three-year traineeship, and has instantly gelled with the rest of the team. Reporting alternately to Iain and Innes, he’s rapidly assimilating skills in milling, mashing, distilling, warehousing, coopering, vatting and bottling.
