The New Zealand climate is ideally suited for the production of malt whisky. New Zealand contains some of the best barley in the world, remarkable water sourced from ancient mountains and we're surrounded by a cultural heritage that encourages questioning of long-standing conventional thinking. 1919 Micro-Batch release showcases the terroir of New Zealand whisky.
Kirikiriroa release is a reflection of New Zealand’s soil, climate and geographical location at the bottom of the world. Along with the influences and profiles created by our custom made still. It’s a unique balanced expression of grains and red wine cask.
