Waterford Irish Whisky


Waterford Organic Gaia 1.1. Irish Single Malt...$84.99
The Arcadian Series represents our otherworldly garden of delights. We sought out maverick farmers, inspirational growers, iconoclasts whose ethos & way of life respects the land & the old ways in the pursuit of pure flavours over yield imperatives. Gaia, the neopagan goddess of yore, a personification of Mother Earth herself, is a fitting custodian to bring forth Ireland’s first whisky distilled from certified organic Irish barley.
John Mallick, Paddy Tobin, Alan Jackson, Pat and Denis Booth, Jason Stanley and Trevor Harris rose to the challenge laid down by us to produce the first Irish-grown organic malting barley.
Cask composition: 42% first fill US oak, 17% virgin US oak, 23% premium French oak and 18% Vin Doux Naturel.
Each bottle of Organic GAIA Edition 1.1 has a TÉIREOIR code, which offers an unparalleled level of bottling information on the barley, maps, imagery and even audio from the farm. 

Waterford  Dunmore Edition 1.1. 
Irish Single Malt...$74.99
Single Farm
Made from 100% Irish-grown barley, Single Farm Origin: Dunmore Edition 1.1 was grown by John Tynan in County Laois. At the top of John Tynan’s barley fields, within a striking circular copse of trees, is the early medieval fort that lends the townland its name – An Dún Mór, the big fort – a reminder of turbulent times of lore. Nestled between the Slieve Bloom Mountains & the Castlecomer Plateau of County Laois is this westerly-facing, lowland terroir, of limestone-derived loamy drift that harbours a compact gravelly tilth.
Cask composition: 33% first fill US oak, 18% virgin US oak, 25% premium French oak and 24% Vin Doux Naturel (sweet fortified wines).
