Waterford was set up in 2015 with the purpose of producing whisky that focuses on the main ingredient - barley - and the impact of differing growing conditions on the flavour of the whisky.
Waterford's Single Farm Origin series is a range of limited edition whiskies that explore Irish "teireoir" - using the barley from one farm at a time. Long fermentation and slow double distillation create an impactful flavour, and the texture is maximised by no chill filtration or additional colouring.
Waterford Hook Head 1.1 is the first release from the 2015 Hook Head farm harvest, with barley grown in extreme maritime conditions creating a unique profile.
Made entirely from Irish 'Propino' malted barley which has been grown by Martin Foley, the whisky has been aged for over 3 years and 8 months in multiple cask types including first-fill, virgin US & French oak.
A rich texture with notes of earthy maltiness, salted caramel, citrus peel, clove, white pepper, ginger biscuits and a slight touch of salted popcorn with a long and oily finish.
