Event Details

Join us online as we taste through a selection of fine whiskies from the Waterford distillery with Stef Holt & Grace O’Reilly

“When we say we bring the same intellectual drive, methodology and rigour as the great French winemakers to single malt whisky, what does that actually mean?

It means applying strict production criteria to Irish barley and whisky production. It means sourcing barley from individual Irish farms – some organic, some biodynamic. It means malting, fermenting, distilling and maturing those farm crops in complete isolation – from field to barrel. We showcase the barley flavours derived from individual Irish farms, terroir by terroir, in our Single Farm Origin series. But the ultimate goal is to one day use these individual terroirs to produce world’s most unique, complex and compelling whisky.”

Join us as we welcome Stef Holt, of Speciality Brands, and Grace O’Reilly, Waterford’s agronomist in charge of terroir, as they discuss the Waterford distillery and guide us through an online tasting of a selection of six of their incredible whiskies and teach their unique philosophy.

The line up:

– Sheestown 1.2

– Grattansbrook 1.1

– Ballymorgan 1.2

– Ballykilcavan 1.2

– Bannow Island 1.2

– Gaia 1.1
