Irish whiskey-maker Waterford has released their Single Farm Origin Series, currently comprised of three whiskies made using 100% Irish barley – Bannow Island: Edition 1.1, Ballykilcavan: Edition 1.1, and Ratheadon: Edition 1.1.

Waterford’s production process using a mash filter [instead of a mash tun], a minimum fermentation time of 120 hours and “exceptionally slow” distillations has produced:

Bannow Island: Edition 1.1 – distilled from barley grown on the southern coast of the coutnry and embracing the “salt-laden” Atlantic winds and sandy soils.

Ballykilcavan: Edition 1.1. – distilled from barley grown in County Laois.

Ratheadon: Edition 1.1 – of which 2000 bottles will become available later in the year exclusively online or from the distillery.

Both Waterford Bannow Island: Edition 1.1 and Ballykilcavan: Edition 1.1 Irish whiskies have been bottled at 50% alcohol by volume [100 proof].

Only 1500 bottles of both Waterford Bannow Island: Edition 1.1 and Ballykilcavan: Edition 1.1 are being made available in the UK on June 22, 2020 for $85 per bottle. Waterford has bottled 8,000 bottles total of each whiskey for worldwide markets.

Ratheadon: Edition 1.1 will follow, available exclusively online or from the distillery. There will be around 2,000 bottles available.
