Shane started work at Royal Lochnagar Distillery as a day-shift operator when he was just 17 years old. Since then he has gained over 25 years experience in the production of fine single malt Scotch whisky and is passionate about his craft. After three years at Oban Distillery he became distillery manager with J&G Grant and responsible for ensuring the continued quality of the prestigious Glenfarclas range. Shane has been involved with Wolfburn from the early stages of the project, ensuring that the new Wolfburn single malt is in experienced hands from inception to cask.
Iain joined the whisky trade at a young age after a brief period in engineering. Although relatively young in whisky terms, he has already spent 17 years learning and refining his craft and is a capable hand in all areas of the process at Wolfburn. Achieving a Distinction in the General Certificate of Distilling along the way he has worked with Balmenach Distillery, Allt a Bhainne Distillery and Glenlivet. He is an integral member of the Wolfburn team and an enthusiastic, practical addition to a dynamic working partnership.
We're aiming to make Wolfburn a very smooth, aromatic and pleasing whisky to drink. So far the results have been absolutely excellent.

Innes is a local lad from just up the road. After accepting the offer of an apprenticeship at Wolfburn, Innes along with Charlie completes the team. We are thrilled to be passing on Shane and Iain’s invaluable knowledge to the next generation of whisky makers.
When Charlie completed his schooling we were delighted to be able to offer him a full apprenticeship, which he has embarked upon with gusto. We are looking forward to a long and happy journey with Charlie at Wolfburn.
