Our Master Blender
Following in the footsteps of his father and grandfather, Richard Paterson is a third generation Master Blender of global renown and we are incredibly honoured to have him as Wolfcraig’s Master Blender.
Richard, nicknamed “The Nose”, is a giant of the Scotch Whisky industry and, having served over fifty years with the Whyte and Mackay Group, there are few who equal his knowledge and expertise.
With an impeccable legacy within the Scotch Whisky industry, Richard has been rightly garlanded across the industry with a plethora of distinguished awards including the Icon of Whisky Lifetime Achievement Award, winner of the ‘Spirit of Scotland’ Trophy and inducted into the Whisky Magazine Hall of Fame.
Unconventional, inspiring, passionate, Richard’s tenacity in pushing boundaries has driven him to develop some of the world’s most collectable and valuable Single Malts.
Wolfcraig Distillery is proud to welcome his passion, drive and unrivalled expertise to the family.
