Irish Single Malt Whiskey
Distillery Bottling 70cl / 50.0%
Located on the south-east coast of Ireland, Waterford Distillery is known for its barley-forward, terroir-driven, compelling Irish whisky.
Sheestown 1.1 forms part of Waterfords Single Farm Origin series and is made using 100% Irish malted barley.
Sheestown is known locally as "the place of the lush grass", and is home to Philip O'Brien who has farmed this land for half a century.
This whisky was matured in 35% American first-fill oak, 21% virgin American oak, 25% premium French oak and 19% casks previously used to age Vin Doux Naturel fortified wines.
