Waterford Distillery is a major new whiskey project by the man behind the renaissance of Islay's Bruichladdich Single Malt Whiskey!
We chose Waterford, for here on the banks of the river Suir, on Ireland's sunny south-eastern coast, we have an exceptional state-of-the-art facility originally built by Diageo in 2004 and converted to distilling in 2015. And we have the finest quality raw materials; the purest of spring water from renowned ancient wells; a team of passionate distillers that share the vision, and the very best barley in the world.
The provenance of our barley, where and how it is cultivated, is therefore key. Taking proven principles from Islay a giant step further, we have an unprecedented 61 Irish farms, some organically-run, growing barley on 19 distinct soil types. With a pioneering digital logistical system keeping track, each farmer's crop is harvested, stored, malted and distilled separately. Thus we can capture in spirit each farm's terroir, that subtle character shaped by mico-climate and soil. Individuality and integrity from field to barrel.
The goal of this precision, provenance with total traceability, is to provide us with an unparalleled library of maturing, nascent single malt whiskey as each farm's barley is distilled, one per week throughout the year.
The first whisky ran in January 2016. After maturing for several years in the best of French and American oak, we believe these component "single", single malts, each one exhibiting its own nuances, will come together making the most profound single malt whiskey ever created.
