Waterford The Cuvee Single Malt
The Waterford distillery rigorously applies the ancient terroir methodology to today’s verdant landscape of Ireland, home of the world’s finest barley. Now for the first time in single malt whisky, unashamedly inspired by the legendary châteaux of France, they have reached the apogee of this radical philosophy. The Cuvée, a synthesis of Single Farm Origins, an enigmatic gestalt, a milestone in the journey.
