Can a whisky’s terroir survive maturation? Why is such a large percentage of Waterford Distillery’s budget committed to the purchase and storage of casks? How much of a whisky’s flavour come from its time in a cask? What happens the whisky as it matures?
In this episode of Terroir-Driven: The Waterford Whisky podcast, we’re answering these questions and more as we examine the most time-consuming aspect of whisky making, maturation, in order to best understand how the spirit and wood interact with one another and collectively build upon each previous step of the whisky making process in the pursuit of the most flavourful litre of alcohol ever created.
