In collaboration with the Maltclan.
Unexpectedly we have got the opportunity to host a tasting with Ruari Reynier of Waterford distillery. Waterford is maybe a difficult brand to grasp, but it is oooohhhhh sssuuuccchhhh an exciting brand as well. Proofing terroir in whisky is pushing the boundaries of the known whisky industry.
It gives us also the chance to give some of you a sneak preview in our Box Bizar project which we are setting up in the little church of Ten Broek.
A bit about the brand: WATERFORD IS ON A QUEST TO UNEARTH WHISKY’S MOST NATURAL FLAVOURS
Unashamedly influenced by the world’s greatest winemakers, they obsessively bring the same intellectual drive, methodology and rigour to barley – the very source of malt whisky’s complex flavour.
Extolling a hundred exclusive farms of Irish-grown barley, they search for natural flavours via three paths: their Single Farm Origins pursue the individualism of terroir-derived flavour; they are the building blocks of our Cuvées, where the whole is greater than the sum. Finally their Arcadian Barley expresses the intensity of flavour from exploring the old ways – of Organic, Biodynamic, Heritage and even Irish-peated barley. Indeed, so thorough is their exploration of the frontiers of natural flavour that they are the world’s largest producer of organic and biodynamic whiskies.
