Sir Rod Stewart launches Wolfie's blended Scotch whisky

The new whisky, inspired by the music icon's rock 'n' roll heritage, has been produced at Loch Lomond Distillery

30 May 2023

Sir Rod Stewart is launching his own brand of blended whisky: Wolfie's.

The new release is said to have been inspired by music icon Stewart's rock 'n' roll lifestyle, as well as his Scottish heritage and 'cheeky chappie' image.

The first Wolfie's release is a 40% ABV blended Scotch whisky which has been distilled, blended, and bottled by Loch Lomond Group at its distillery in Alexandria. Tasting notes provided by the brand say it has notes of cinnamon, vanilla, pear, and baked apple, with hints of peat.

The lyrics 'Rhythm of My Heart', taken from the opening track on Stewart's 1991 album Vagabond Heart – which adapted the melody of a traditional Scottish folk song – are embossed on the base of the bottle.

Stewart said: "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 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."

Wolfie's will be available to buy from 19 June (RRP £35), with an exclusive pre-sale taking place from 16 June. The whisky will initially be available to buy online across the UK and Europe before launching in the US in July as Stewart embarks on a North American tour.
