Waterford Organic Gaia 1.1
Waterford's Arcadian series is a provenance-driven range of whiskies made from organic, biodynamic and heritage grains.
The first release in the Arcadian series, Organic Gaia 1.1 uses 100% Irish, organic malted barley, sourced from six Irish farms with total transparency and traceability.
Organic Gaia 1.1 was distilled in 2016 and then aged for three years and nine months in a spectrum of super-premium oak: 42% first-fill US oak, 17% virgin US oak, 18% Vin Doux Naturel – sweet fortified wines – and 23% premium French oak. It’s bottled at 50% ABV without colouring, chill-filtration or any additives. Totally natural.
Orange zest, malty figs and salted caramel aromas on the nose. Zesty pepper on the tongue with cloves, cherries, butterscotch and layers of spice. A long, oily and dry finish with a final sweetness.
