Waterford Single Malt Hook Head 1.1
Waterford Hookhead 1.1 is the first edition made using barely grown at the ‘Hookhead Farm’. The lighthouse at Hook Head stands resolute against the full force of the Atlantic Ocean on Ireland’s southern coast, 10 miles from the distillery – so close that Oliver Cromwell vowed to take Waterford ‘by hook or by crook’ in the 17th century. In its shadow, Martin Foley grows barley on clay/loam soils derived from limestone, belonging to the Elton series. Exposed to the full range of salt-laden storms, sea mists & ocean breezes, it’s an extreme maritime terroir.
Bottled at 50% ABV without colouring, chill-filtration or any additives.
