These two whiskies form part of the revamped core range from the coastal Highland distillery of Glenglassaugh. The complete brand overhaul includes new packaging and three new whiskies - both are said to be influenced by the land and sea and the vibrant coastal spirit produced at Glenglassaugh. Alongside Portsoy and Sandend is the 12 years old - the first age statement featuring whisky distilled at Glenglassaugh since it reopened after a lengthy closure in 2008. We plan to review this shortly.

This new whisky is the latest limited edition single malt from the English distillery of White Peak. The Wire Works Alter Ego uses the distillery's signature lightly peated single malt but with a twist. The release sees spirit used that has been distilled using alternate cut points on the still. This has resulted in different peat characteristics and caused fruitier elements to appear. This rare spirit has been matured in first-fill ex-bourbon barrels and is bottled at 51.8% ABV. Wire Works Alter Ego is available from the distillery shop and via www.whitepeakdistillery.co.uk. It will also be sold through selected specialist whisky retailers in the UK. A bottle will cost £65.
