A terroir-driven approach to whisky making begins with the land - the fields and farms that give Waterford Distillery its barley. It's in these fields that the growers and their families maximize the flavour-potential of their barley crop. Aided and advised by Grace O’Reilly, Ireland’s only distillery-employed agronomist, growers follow a different process to growing and harvesting.
In this episode of Terroir-Driven: The Waterford Whisky podcast we’ll meet growers who have farmed their land for generations, we’ll learn what it means to them to be part of Waterford Distillery’s approach and we’ll follow barley’s journey from sowing to harvesting.
