The Arcadian Series of alt-barley is where Waterford champions those maverick growers whose inspirational ethos & way of life respects the land and the old ways in the pursuit of flavour over yield imperative. For the first time Waterford dips into a new vintage: the 2016 organic harvest. Once again Gaia, neopagan goddess & a personification of Mother Earth herself, is the standard bearer for the celebration of this vibrant new edition of Ireland’s only whisky to be distilled from organic Irish barley.

Palate: Spicy, white pepper, grapefruit, dry heat, liquorice, cherries, coco powder, wine gums, dry toast, salted peanuts, lemon zest.
Finish: A dry spice dance that tangos and waltz’s like a happy couple into the golden peach sunset.
