White Peak Distillery has announced it is set to release its oldest whisky yet.

Called Wire Works Bourbon Barrel, it is the Ambergate distillery’s first release to be fully matured in ex-bourbon barrels, featuring some of the oldest casks in White Peak’s warehouse since its inception in 2016.

To make Bourbon Barrel, each cask was filled with Wire Works’ signature lightly-peated single malt spirit.

It has now developed into a beautifully balanced complex spirit, showcasing the fruit-forward character of the distillery.

The new release will join Wire Works Caduro as the second permanent expression in White Peak’s core range of products.

Max Vaughan, founder of White Peak Distillery, said: “We’re so excited to be releasing our second permanent expression to build on our core range of whiskies following Caduro last year.

“Bourbon Barrel is a signature whisky for us, elevating our house style and showcasing our unique flavour elements; our Derbyshire home, lightly-peated malt barley, fresh local brewer’s yeast, long fermentation and slow distillation.

“Ex-bourbon barrels are considered to be relatively inactive and so their exclusive use in maturation can really highlight a distillery’s true house character.

“It’s over six years since we fired up the stills, and we feel the time is right in 2024 to open up our soul with this release.

“This is some of our oldest liquid from some of our favourite casks, and we hope White Peak whisky lovers will enjoy it as much as we’ve enjoyed our journey so far.”

Wire Works Bourbon Barrel will be available to buy from White Peak’s distillery shop from 5 July, as well as selected trade partners nationwide.
