WATERFORD Biodynamic Luna 1.1 Whiskey

Waterford Whisky
Product Code: FF09NVFC

Tasting Notes

Apricot gold with oils that are in no rush, and the aroma of hay on the ground after a shower of rain. Spice on every level, front, middle, back and in between. An everlasting heat and spice that’s dry but is mouth-watering, with some mint tea. It has more of a linger and less of a finish.

            [Notes1] => Blend of triple distilled Malt Whiskey with a lighter Irish grain whiskey.  Matured in former Bourbon and Sherry casks that gives it a rich, warming taste of fresh fruit and vanilla.


Eccentric to some, regenerative to others, 
biodynamic agriculture goes beyond the 
ordinary ecological mindset. Drawing upon 
ancient lore of lunar cycles & exotic 
preparations, it seeks to charge soils with 
vitality & barley with vibrancy. Practised by 
the most visionary & curious, we too are 
intrigued about the most natural flavours we 
can capture in spirit. For this landmark whisky, 
distilled from Ireland’s only biodynamic barley, 
we invoke the goddess of the moon for our 
most esoteric & evocative bottling.

About this product +

Producer >

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 >

Eccentric to some, regenerative to others, biodynamic agriculture goes beyond the ordinary ecological mindset. Drawing upon ancient lore of lunar cycles & exotic preparations, it seeks to charge soils with vitality & barley with vibrancy. Practised by the most visionary & curious, we too are intrigued about the most natural flavours we can capture in spirit. For this landmark whisky, distilled from Ireland’s only biodynamic barley, we invoke the goddess of the moon for our most esoteric & evocative bottling.

“I first tried this one at Whisky Live Paris this year and found it that good that I included it amongst my three ‘coups de coeur’… it’s the texture, it’s alive! 90 Points.”

 

 

Fiona Morrison, Master of Wine

“Really appreciated it’s floral and saline elements with an elegance and a length which is very attractive, certainly very terroir-driven”
