Waterford Peated Fenniscourt Whiskey 70cl in gift box
Unashamedly influenced by the world’s greatest winemakers, Waterford Whiskey obsessively bring the same intellectual drive, methodology and rigour to barley – the very source of malt whisky’s complex flavour. Waterford Whiskey is the world’s largest producer of organic and biodynamic whiskies.
The lush, inland terroir of Fenniscourt in Co. Carlow has been farmed by the Byrne family since 1870, its rich Elton Series soils nourished by the River Barrow. For this whisky, their barley was kiln-dried during malting by heat generated from sphagnum-rich peat from Niall Carroll’s cuttings at Ballyteige, Co. Kildare. The terroir’s character suited a medium peating intensity of 38ppm. Along with its sister bottling, Ballybannon, Peated Fenniscourt represents the first marriage of Irish barley and Irish peat in generations.
