Wire Works Whisky
FLAVOUR THROUGH EVERY STRAND
Having never before been made in Derbyshire, we set out to develop our own flavour and provenance in whisky-making. This hasn’t meant throwing out the traditions that have stood the test of time but we’ve closely considered every stage of whisky-making to put down our own marker. Our home, at a 19th century former Wire Works, has its own rich heritage of innovation and making things the proper way. This strong sense of place and pursuit of flavour has informed our choices; using English (and Derbyshire) barley, developing a special blend of live yeast with links to Derbyshire’s brewing heritage, long fermentations, copper pot stills hand-built to our designs that add the final magic to our spirit.
Wood is important (although we think putting our soul into what goes into the cask is more important) and we’ve selected our casks from family-owned businesses where relationships matter.
Our core house style of Wire Works whisky is a lightly-peated single malt that has already won a number of awards since we started in 2018.
All our whisky is distilled and matured on site. A unique environment and a full life-cycle of Derbyshire provenance.
