Waterford Wilkinstown Edition 1.1 - Capturing the Essence of Dutch Exclusive Single Farm Origin Whisky

In the picturesque countryside of Wexford, Ireland, just a few miles west of the town and near the mouth of the River Slaney, lies an ancient castle surrounded by a rampart and graveyard. Today, this historic site serves a different purpose as it is home to the barley fields of Ger Kelly, a third-generation grower. At his farm named Wilkinstown, the humble Ger Kelly has dedicated years to cultivating barley on this beautiful piece of Irish land. The flat terrain, influenced by the maritime microclimate and characterized by the estuary, provides the ideal conditions for barley cultivation.

Waterford Wilkinstown 1.1 is a whiskey crafted exclusively for the Dutch market, using barley grown by Ger Kelly on his farm. This exceptional whiskey is a testament to the distillery's commitment to innovation and embracing challenges. Waterford Distillery is renowned for its Single Farm Origin approach, capturing the terroir of each farm and showcasing the diversity of barley from individual Irish farms and crops.

In appearance, Waterford Wilkinstown 1.1 boasts a light yellow to gold hue that invites exploration. The nose reveals a captivating array of aromas, including brown sugar, coffee beans, liquorice, honey, malt, sage, worn leather, dried flowers, green vegetation, red apple, coconut, lavender, and a certain dryness. It's a sensory journey that transports you to the fields of Wilkinstown, where the barley was carefully nurtured.

On the palate, this exclusive expression continues to delight. Notes of cloves, pear tartan, fennel, ginger biscuits, barley sugar, grapefruit, stewed apples, blackberries, and homemade custard dance on the taste buds. The flavors harmonize to create a symphony of taste, showcasing the craftsmanship and attention to detail that Waterford Distillery is known for.

The finish is a lingering sensation of spices that gradually fades into a warm sweetness. The spices tingle on the palate, leaving a memorable impression and inviting you to savor the moment.

Waterford Wilkinstown Edition 1.1 is a true reflection of the dedication and passion that go into every bottle produced by Waterford Distillery. It captures the essence of Ger Kelly's farm, showcasing the unique qualities of his barley and the impact of the local terroir. This exclusive release for the Dutch market offers whisky connoisseurs a chance to experience a meticulously crafted spirit that embodies precision, rarity, and the rich diversity of Irish barley.

In conclusion, Waterford Wilkinstown Edition 1.1 is a whisky that celebrates the marriage of nature, tradition, and innovation.
