Barry & Fitzwilliam appointed Irish distributor for Rod Stewart’s new whiskey
Distilled on the banks of Loch Lomond by an expert team with decades of whisky-making know-how
3 July 2023
Music industry icon Rod Stewart has announced his next release – Wolfie’s Whisky, a blended Scotch whisky that embodies his reputation as ‘the Cockney Scotsman’ and pays tribute to his Scottish heritage.
Wolfie’s Blended Scotch Whisky (40% ABV) is wonderfully balanced with flavours 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, American 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 Rod’s 1991 album Vagabond Heart, the lyrics ‘Rhythm of My Heart’ are emblazoned on the base of the bottle. Rod’s recording of the song was a nod to his own Scottish heritage having adapted the melody from the traditional folk song, Loch Lomond.
Michael Barry managing director of Barry & Fitzwilliam has been a lifelong fan of Rod Stewart’s music is ecstatic to have concluded a deal with Rod and his team to become the Irish distributor of Wolfie’s. Wolfie’s Whiskey will be available in Ireland this July with an RRP of €40.00.
Designed to reflect Rod’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,” said Stewart. “Fine-tuned and perfectly balanced, Wolfie’s is a delight both over ice and mixed into a favourite cocktail.
“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 behaviour of my more mischievous days, and the excitement of what life still has to offer – let the good times roll!”
