Ireland’s first organic Whiskey was distilled in 2016 using organic Irish barley from seven different farms, and certified by Ireland’s Organic Trust. Matured in super-premium oak barrels, 42% first-fill American oak, 17% virgin American oak, 23% premium French oak and 18% vin doux naturel, known as sweet fortified wine casks. The 50% ABV bottling has been made without the use of colouring, additives or chill filtration. ‘Gaia’ the neopagan goddess of yore, a personification of Mother Earth herself, this is part of the Waterford distillery’s ‘Arcadian’ Series and is Limited Edition.
About the estate
Waterford Distillery is a major new whisky project by the man behind the renaissance of Islay's Bruichladdich single malt whisky.
We’re embarking on a long journey, a voyage as ambitious as it’s pioneering. The destination is to create not just the most compelling Irish whisky, but the world’s most profound single malt.
We chose Waterford, for here on the banks of the river Suir, on Ireland’s sunny south-eastern coast, we have an exceptional state-of-the-art facility originally built by Diageo in 2004 and converted to distilling in 2015. And we have the finest quality raw materials: the purest of spring water from renowned ancient wells; a team of passionate distillers that share the vision; and the very best barley in the world.
