About the new peated Waterford expressions
Peated: Fenniscourt, along with its sister bottling Peated: Ballybannon, represents the first marriage of Irish barley and Irish peat in generations. Arcadian Barley, from our secret garden of delights, explores the natural flavours, intensity & honesty of old ways. This same diffused aroma cloaked barley dried over peat smoke by illicit distillers, a custom that died out in the 1850s.

Hunter 1.1 is a rare Heritage offering. Arcadian Barley, from our secret garden of delights, explores the natural flavours, intensity & honesty of the old ways. We have had to go to extraordinary lengths to eschew the quotidian varieties — those modern yield enhanced versions that distillers are obliged to use, in order to celebrate the lost flavours – flavours that evolved over centuries in harmony with Ireland’s terroirs. Indeed, to rediscover the flavour of iconic Irish barley we must venture back in time.
