Description

This could be the most lushly textured of the Waterford 1.1 Single Farm Origin releases I have tried so far. Juicy marmalade and apple sauce notes appear on both nose and palate. Nice, firm oak – some of it from virgin casks – supports this depth of flavour with real aplomb. Drink this with cake and a big-band soundtrack: think Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman or even Glenn Miller. With lots of trombones, ideally.

About this SPIRIT

Waterford Distillery

Waterford Distillery

Waterford Distillery was founded in 2015, representing the latest whisky venture from Mark Reynier, the figure behind the revival of Bruichladdich Distillery on Islay. Sitting on the banks of the River Suir in the city of Waterford, in the southeast of Ireland, it’s housed in the same building which was formerly used by Diageo to make Guinness.

After Bruichladdich was bought by Rémy Cointreau in 2012, Mark “followed the barley” to Ireland, believing the country to be home to the best barley in Europe.

What marks Waterford apart from its competitors is its bold focus on terroir – an unconventional approach to whisky which has drawn its admirers and detractors alike. Mark, whose roots lie in fine wine, describes it as “unashamedly a philosophy from the wine world that I’m adapting to whisky”.

In response to challenges from the whisky industry, the team at Waterford have been working on the Whisky Terroir Project, dedicated to demonstrating the importance of terroir in influencing the flavour of barley.
