Waterford Single Farm Origin Ballymorgan Ed. 1.2 70cl 50°
The second edition of Ballymorgan was made with barley cultivated by Robert Milne in eastern Ireland, where loamy and clay soils make up one of the most fertile soil for this cereal to grow. This Waterford is aged 4 months longer than version 1.1, which is about 10% more aging and makes tangible changes.
This Single Malt was distilled in 2016, bottled at 50%, without colourings or cold filtration. It develops a gourmet character (apple crumble, milk chocolate…), enriched by vegetal and fruity aromas.
Like the other whiskeys from the Waterford Distillery Single Farm Origin range, this Single Malt comes from a long fermentation, slowly distilled and aged in different exceptional oak barrels, selected for their quality and profile. The expression of the complexity of a single terroir, a single farm, a single harvest ... One place, one farm, at a time!
The Waterford distillery was launched by Mark Reynier in Ireland, drawing inspiration from the greatest winegrowers in the world, and is generating enormous interest among whisky lovers around the world.
After having brilliantly directed the Bruichladdich distillery, Mark Reynier launched a new challenge in the world of whisky with Waterford, that of transparency to reveal and enhance the spirit of the terroirs. The distillery will relentlessly transpose to the single malt whisky the same intellectual approach, the same methodology and the same rigor that exist in the world of wine.
Through its “Téireoir code” system, Waterford makes known all the indications which influenced the qualities of its bottlings, of the soil of the field, through its geolocation, the variety of barley, yeast, the barrels used and the assembly carried out: a terroir, a farm, a harvest ... As a bonus, interviews with farmers, superb photos and the sounds of the field can be found on the page dedicated to each Single Malt.
Waterford thus reveals the often underestimated influence of all the elements such as the earth, or the microclimate on the production of whisky.
"For years people have been deceived as to the source of the quality of whisky: first the stills, then the water and now the barrels. We want to highlight what makes whisky the most complex spirit in the world, the original source of its extraordinary aromas and flavours: barley." Says Mark Reynier, founder of the Waterford distillery. "The new Single Farm Origin range is a series of limited editions of natural whiskies with ultra-sharp origins that reveal the Irish terroir farm by farm, place by place. They are the expression of precision and rarity, revealing the aromas and flavours of barley from small Irish farms and varying with each harvest."
Backed by cutting-edge technology, Waterford Single Malts push the boundaries of authenticity and traceability.
