Waterford Whisky

Waterford Whisky

The Worlds first Biodynamic Whisky. One of only four organic Whisky’s In Britain and Ireland. ‘The integrity of what Waterford is, is incorruptible’ – Mark Reynier on their whole approach. Unashamedly influenced by the world’s greatest winemakers, they obsessively bring the same intellectual drive, methodology and rigour to barley – the very source of malt whisky’s complex flavour. Extolling a hundred exclusive farms of Irish-grown barley, they search for natural flavours via three paths: their Single Farm Origins pursue the individualism of terroir-derived flavour; they are the building blocks of our Cuvées, where the whole is greater than the sum. Finally their Arcadian Barley expresses the intensity of flavour from exploring the old ways – of Organic, Biodynamic, Heritage and even Irish-peated barley. 

Indeed, so thorough is their exploration of the frontiers of natural flavour that they  are the world’s largest producer of organic and biodynamic whiskies

Viticulture

Using 100% Irish barley, widely considered to be the world’s finest, our Single Farm Origin series is an uber-provenance range of limited edition natural whiskies that explore Irish terroir one farm, one place, at a time. They are expressions of precision and rarity, showcasing barley flavours derived from individual Irish farms and harvests. Terroir is the 3D interaction on the a plat of soil, microclimate and site. It influences how the barley grows and thus the flavours in the grain. Captured farm by farm, terroir requires an extensive logistical infrastructure (the Cathedral of Barley) to verify and prove its existence. Each terroir is a unique starting point for our whisky. By separately storing, distilling and maturing barley from 110 different farms we can create an unparalleled range of flavours for our Head Distiller, Ned, to draw on.
