The Waterford Distillery is known for focusing on local barley, showing that terroir does have an impact on the final spirit. The master distiller and his team work with a variety of local farms to create Single Farm Origin single malt whiskeys.

Hook Head Lighthouse stands 10 miles from the distillery on the south coast of Ireland, adamant against the brunt of the Atlantic - so close that Oliver Cromwell vowed in the 17th century to take Waterford "by hook or by crook". In his shade, Martin Foley grows barley on clay-loam soils composed of limestone and belonging to the Elton series. This extremely maritime terroir is exposed to all saline storms, sea fog and sea breezes.

Earthy maltiness and notes of fresh earth combine with citrus zest, bread crust, spiciness of clove and white pepper. Caramel, milk chocolate and salted popcorn give way to notes of hay and green oak leaves.
Intensely spicy with cloves and white pepper, plus salted caramel, liquorice and ginger biscuits as well as lemon zest and chili chocolate.
Dry but with a lingering oiliness that lingers on the spiciness for a long time.

  • Waterford - Single Malt Irish Whisky

    Die irische Waterford Destillerie, gelegen im gleichnamigen Ort im Südosten Irlands, basiert auf einem einzigen Leitprinzip: Es geht um das Terroir - ein Ort, ein Betrieb, ein Whisky.

    Unter Verwendung einzelner Ernten irischer Gerste von einzelnen Farmen hat das Team der Brennerei elementare Whiskys geschaffen, die den Geschmack von Ort und Zeit zum Ausdruck bringen

    Jede Charge Whisky wird so hergestellt, dass die einzigartigen Aromen der zugrundeliegenden Gerste und ihrer gesamten Herkunft optimal zur Geltung kommen.
