Distillery owner, Mark Reynier
“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.
Using the world's finest barley, our Single Farm Origin series is an uber- provenance range of natural whiskies that explore Irish terroir one place, one farm, at a time.
Barley-forward, terroir-driven, natural whisky. No coloring, chill-filtration or any additives whatsoever.”

A true WORLD FIRST & pioneering distillation for the discerning. Eccentric to some, regenerative to others biodynamic agriculture goes beyond the extraordinary ecological mindset. Drawing upon ancient lore of lunar cycles & exotic preparations, it seeks to charge soils with vitality & barley with vibrancy. Practiced by the most visionary & curious, we too are intrigued about the most natural flavors we can capture in spirit. For this landmark whisky, distilled from Ireland’s only biodynamic barley, we invoke the goddess of the moon for our most esoteric & evocative bottling.

Our unique library of individual Waterford whiskies–derived from distinctive Irish terroirs –presents to us an unprecedented spectrum of natural flavours defined by Ireland’s soils & microclimates. Now, by layering such singular spirits together, each expressing its own identity, we alone are able to create this dynamic assemblage in which 25 individual Single Farm Origins coalesce to create The Cuvée. Thus beginning a new era for malt whisky. A celebration of a complexity only attainable from a fusion of individual terroirs, in this way– & in this bottle – we believe that the whole is greater than simply the sum of its parts.
