White Peak auctioning bottles of inaugural whisky for charity

White Peak Distillery is partnering with Whisky Auctioneer to offer fans a chance to secure a bottle of its sell-out inaugural whisky release.

The English distillery launched its Wire Works Whisky in February 2022 - reportedly the first single malt whisky to have been distilled in its home county of Derbyshire - with the first run numbering just over 5,000 bottles.

Now, White Peak is set to auction off the first 12 individually numbered bottles of Wire Works Whisky through auction site Whisky Auctioneer. The sale will run on from 26 August to 5 September.

All of the proceeds from the auction will be donated to local charities, including the Derbyshire Wildlife Trust and the Peak District National Park Foundation. To maximise the proceeds, Whisky Auctioneer has waived its fee and will donate the 10 per cent buyer's commission in addition to the hammer price.

Claire Vaughan, who co-founded White Peak Distillery in 2016 with husband Max, said: "We are very excited to be bringing this auction to life through Whisky Auctioneer and support two important environmental charities in our local Derbyshire region. We strive to support our local communities, so when we first launched our inaugural single malt, we saw another great opportunity to again give something back."

Joe Wilson, head curator and spirits specialist at Whisky Auctioneer, said: "Excitement reverberated in the whisky community earlier this year with the release of the inaugural Wire Works Whisky from White Peak Distillery. As such, we are delighted to now partner with the distillery to offer the only chance to acquire the first 12 numbered bottles."

The Wire Works Whisky auction is open from 26 August to 5 September 2022. For more information, go to
