Full Port is our very first release of Wire Works whisky matured fully in port casks. The casks are all made at family-owned Dias Cooperage in Porto. Each cask is made at the cooperage by local, high-skilled craftsmen using traditional techniques, knowledge built up and passed down over many years from generation to generation.
Once the casks have been used in the Port sector they make their way back to the cooperage before embarking on a second career in whisky. The ultimate in refill and reuse. We filled these casks in 2019 and they’ve been laid down in our lower dunnage ever since .
