Waitui Honey Malt Whiskey 700ml


Waitui Honey Malt Whiskey is a small batch single malt that is one of only a few true honey malt whiskeys produced in the world today. New Zealand malted barley is used and it is aged in Manuka Honey Mead oak barrels for no less than eight years. The result speaks for itself in a very gentle easy to drink whiskey.

Inspired by first aged whiskeys made by monks who only had Honey Mead barrels available to age their malted barley spirit before whiskey became what it is today. In 2002 Kiwi Spirit Distillery began creating their Waitui Whiskey using these revived age old techniques.

There is no honey added to this whiskey, instead the Manuka Honey character is imbued from barrels that have previously held Kiwi Spirit Distillery's Manuka Honey Mead. No malt blends or additives, just time in a barrel to mellow and mature.

Kiwi Spirit Distillery's pristine spring waters is another factor that makes our Waitui Whiskey so unique, drawn from the deep aquifers of Golden Bay, feeding a world renowned massive freshwater spring, Te Waikoropupū Springs. Acknowledged to be the world’s clearest water on the planet at 81 meters clear visibility and fed from ancient subterranean alpine rivers that travel through limestone deep under the high mountains of New Zealand, filtering through rock layers and caves out into the natural pristine springs and rivers of Golden Bay, New Zealand.
