White Peak distillery unveils latest Wire Works whisky release

White Peak distillery has unveiled its latest Wire Works whisky release – a Virgin Oak Cask expression which marks the second from the brand to be matured in such a cask.

Bottled at 50.5% ABV, the whisky is made with lightly peated malted barley, live brewer’s yeast and a six day fermentation time to add deep fruit notes. A vatting of lightly peated single malt whisky initially matured in first fill ex-bourbon barrels is then finished in the aforementioned virgin American oak barrels for several months.

The expression is available from today and can be purchased from the distillery shop as well as its trade partners, including Master of Malt and The Whisky Exchange, at an RRP of £67 per 70cl.

Claire Vaughan, founder of the distillery, commented on the release: “In our latest release, we're giving whisky enthusiasts the opportunity to savour the unique flavours of our lightly-peated spirit and explore the journey our whisky has taken in new wood. Matured in Virgin Oak casks from the renowned Kelvin Cooperage, celebrated for exceptional quality, this is a development of the limited edition 2022 release. The selection of char levels in this vatting introduces a delightful range of flavours, from lighter toasted nuts, vanilla, and sweetness to the richer notes of caramel and toffee. This whisky is a perfect dram for the fireside."
