The first release of Lakefield Irish single malt whiskey from Waterford is part of its Single Farm Origin range. Made with barley harvested in 2016, Lakefield 1.1 was matured in a variety of casks for three and a half years before being bottled. The palate offers notes of apple crumble, stewed rhubarb and clove that linger in the finish.
Waterford proudly utilises 100% demonstrably Irish-grown barley from one farm, one terroir for each release. Lakefield 1.1 is the first edition made using barley grown at the Lakefield Farm, east of Durrow, Co. Laois. The barley here is derived from limestone and sandstone soils, these well-drained, deep loam soils consistently produce exceptional barley quality.
Bottled at 50% ABV colouring free and without chill-filtration.
