Description

A lightly-peated single malt whisky from a small batch vatting of American and French oak casks, predominantly STR with a significant element of ex-bourbon. These casks were chosen to promote the house style of fruit forward new make at the selected ABV.

Wire Works Whisky from White Peak Distillery is Derbyshire’s very first single malt.   

Provenance, heritage and flavour are at the heart of the Distillery ethos and whisky-making process, and it’s home at the dramatic, former Johnson & Nephew Wire Works(*) is celebrated within the whisky brand. The Distillery’s woodland home on the banks of the River Derwent has a long history of innovation and forms part of a *UNESCO World Heritage Site.    

Wire Works Whisky celebrates its rich homeland and the brewing heritage for which the region is so renowned. Every aspect of production and maturation is done onsite at the Distillery to ensure that the unique location and environment can play their part in the provenance of the final spirit.   

The lightly-peated single malt whisky has been created using a combination of English un-peated and peated malted barley. A flavour-focused four-day fermentation uses a unique yeast Blend incorporating live yeast sourced from a local Peak District brewery.    

The Distillery’s traditional, bespoke copper pot stills have been hand-built by McMillan and are run slowly to help produce the desired flavour profile. The final spirit is matured in a variety of carefully selected first fill oak casks, including ex-bourbon, virgin and STR (re-conditioned casks that have been shaved, toasted and re-charred), adding the final rich flavours to the whisky.
