Wire Works Alter Ego reveals an exciting alternative flavour profile of our core lightly-peated house style.

The spirit has been distilled with alternate cut points to previous Wire Works whisky releases, bringing forward richer fruit flavours and a different take to its background light peat – extending the personality of Wire Works Whisky.

In addition to the change in distillers’ cut points, the casks used for the selected vatting lean more on first ex-bourbon than in previous releases, emphasising the fruit notes in the spirit along with a bolder range of vanilla.

Alter Ego, bottled at 51.5% ABV, maintains the balance of higher strength and approachability which has characterised previous releases of Wire Works Whisky.

Cask notes: A vatting of American first fill ex-bourbon and White Peak’s signature STR Casks (re-conditioned wine barriques that have been shaved, toasted and re-charred).

A limited-edition Distillery and trade release, across the UK and Europe. Click and collect not currently available on this item.
