Boilermaker whisky & beer gift set collaboration with Thornbridge Brewery

Take a look at our Whisky and Beer Gift Set. We’re excited to be collaborating with our friends at Thornbridge Brewery with a Derbyshire take on a traditional Boilermaker. And what’s more, every gift set sold will raise money for the volunteer heroes on the Derby Mountain Rescue Team.

What is a Boilermaker?

A Boilermaker is simply a beer drunk with a whisky. It’s believed it takes its name from the workers who built and maintained steam locomotives in the 1800s. These workers were known to head to the bar at the end of the shift. A shot of whisky with a beer became a staple for quickly easing the pain that came from a hard day of back-breaking labour.

The White Peak Distillery Boilermaker gift set has been put together in collaboration with Thornbridge Brewery, bringing together a Derbyshire whisky and a Derbyshire beer.  For the whisky shot, we use our core lightly-peated, single malt spirit, aged for 24 months in an ex-red wine cask. We team this with the multi-award winning, legendary Jaipur IPA that first catapulted Thornbridge into the spotlight.

The set contains 100ml of our single malt spirit (50.1% ABV), 4 x 330ml cans of Jaipur, a limited edition, co-branded stainless steel pint cup and a shot glass. The pack gives the three customary options for how to drink a Boilermaker and you can choose whichever suits your personality!

A Derbyshire collaboration with Thornbridge, raising cash for Derby Mountain Rescue

We’re delighted to have again teamed up with Thornbridge, one of the leaders in the UK Craft Beer scene, and at the heart of the local food and drink scene. We love the great outdoors that the Peak District has to offer (it’s one of the reasons we set up the Distillery here).  Raising cash for the Derby Mountain Rescue Team in the project made perfect sense. They’ll receive proceeds from every sale, making this an even more perfect Christmas gift idea.
