Waterford Micro Cuvée Lómhar

The Waterford distillery was originally built as a state-of-the-art brewing Guinness facility by Diageo in 2003. It was purchased and transformed into a distillery by Mark Reynier in 2014. The former proprietor as Bruichladdich, Reynier was inspired to look to Ireland for his next project following the testimony from the Islay distillery’s Duncan McGillvray that the barley from across the Irish sea was the best he had ever seen. As with Bruichladdich, the Waterford distillery is terroir-focussed, sourcing all of its barley requirement from 46 local farms. The distillery operates a column still, and two pot stills procured from the closed Inverleven distillery in Scotland. The first spirt ran from them in January 2016, and its first publicly available bottlings were produced in 2020.

The Micro Cuvée was the “winter warmer” created by head distiller Ned Gahan at the request of CEO Mark Reynier. Made up of whisky from 11 farms that Waterfood have worked with in their first year and a tiny amount leftover from thier first cuvée – Pilgrimage 

It was originally released at the end of 2020 and was strictly limited to 1,100 bottles.
