Irish Whiskey from Waterford Distillery

With a long history in the drinks industry, having been involved in La Reserve Fine Wines & Spirits and Murray McDavid independent bottlers, and later the purchasing of Bruichladdich Distillery in 2000, Mark Reynier founded the Waterford Distillery in 2014 from a converted former Guinness brewery and set out to produce the first terroir-driven Irish single malt whiskey.

Waterford puts a particular emphasis on barley and Single Farm Origin, placing Terroir, Traceability and Transparency at the heart of its philosophy.

Waterford Peated Woodbrook, another in the series of Peated Single Farm Origin whiskeys, uses peat from the same source as its previous peated whiskeys, namely an inland raised boy at Ballyteige, Co. Kildare. Woodbrook is peated to a high of 74ppm, making it the most heavily peated Irish whiskey ever.

This is the last expression using barley from Woodbrook, Dublin given that a housing estate now occupies the land where the barley once grew. It is bottled at 50% abv.
