Using 100% Irish-grown barley from individual farms, Waterford whisky showcases a distinct flavour profile of one place and time - with each release crafted to celebrate the unique characteristics of its terroir. On a mission for natural flavour, Waterford are the largest producer of organic and biodynamic whiskies.
Waterford Whisky has a mission to extract the most flavour naturally from the original source – barley. Whether using heritage, organic, biodynamic or traditionally grown grain, the differing barley from individual farms around Ireland imbues complex flavours to each expression. The mash is then filtered through a state-of-the-art equipment, to extract only the very best from the grain, and matured with only the finest French and American oak casks.

All of the barley used is harvested from farms throughout Ireland's sunny South East.
