Lammermoor First Edition - Second Release Single Malt Whisky
Welcome to our first release, single malt Whisky.
Our whisky begins with natural spring water sourced right here from Lammermoor Station. After distilling, it's aged on site in locally sourced Central Otago Pinot Noir Barrels made from French Oak.
Our climatic conditions are dramatic and this encourages the whisky to breath in the wood depending on the weather. On a hot day the wood expands allowing the whisky to breathe more, while on a cold day it contracts. This all helps in the ageing process of our whisky.
This Whisky has fabulous colour and maturity for its age, but our extreme hot and cold climate accentuate and in fact accelerate these complex processes.
This is a limited bottling, once it is gone, that's it forever until our next batch release.
Each bottle is numbered so be a part of Lammermoor Distillery's history and secure yourself a bottle now.
Nose: Gentle notes of dried fruits with overtones of malt and ancient wood shavings and lingering toffee notes.
Taste: Sweet and creamy up front with hints of boiled fruit pastilles, before building across the tongue, delivering a big mouth feel of luscious chewy malt. A well-rounded palate settling beautifully into a finish which is soft, warm and long. A beautiful balance of all the elements.
Relinquished “spring laden” water, high on the Lammermoor’s,
Begins its profound journey, to the valley floor’s,
Cascading Aqua tumbles through “silver tussocks” and matagouri,
“Brookside burn”, has the rightful contour to carry,
The crystal clear liquid enters the Distillery of sort
Nearly captured, but never caught,
Consummated marriage, with Barley and yeast,
Commences its process, to tame this beast,
Distilling the amber spirit awakens each dawn
“Water of life” is soon to be born,
Port bloodied barrels, steadfast in anticipation,
The “new make” inaugurates its maturation.
Climatic seasons unfold, yielding the aromatic flavor,
Judicious connoisseurs, gratefully savor
Unleashed and enjoyed, the golden glow is set free
Lammermoor Whisky, distilled illegally, since 1863
