Waterford The Cuvée 70cl 50°
The Cuvée, a highly anticipated Single Malt from the Waterford distillery. This whisky is the deepest in the range, the result of blending barley from 25 farms, the sum of 25 Single Farm Origins. More than a sum, it is a Single Malt of great complexity, reflecting the identity of each terroir, like the great Bordeaux wines.
Waterford's characteristic approach to traceability and transparency is at its peak with The Cuvée, since it is possible to trace the journey of each of the "Single Farm Origins" entering its composition. And therefore to understand how each soil, each climate, each farmer was able to influence this exceptional blend.
The complexity is found at each stage of the tasting as this expression has a rich and deep aromatic profile. Marked by the typical Waterford malty character, this edition brings together fruity and floral aromas of great finesse, delicate gourmet and spicy notes as well as a vegetal and mineral touch, reflecting the terroir, or rather the terroirs.
Definitive expression of Waterford The Cuvée is a permanent edition. Shown with a label designed by artist Leah Hewson.

The Waterford distillery was launched by Mark Reynier in Ireland, drawing inspiration from the greatest winegrowers in the world, and is generating enormous interest among whisky lovers around the world.
After having brilliantly directed the Bruichladdich distillery, Mark Reynier launched a new challenge in the world of whisky with Waterford, that of transparency to reveal and enhance the spirit of the terroirs. The distillery will relentlessly transpose to the single malt whisky the same intellectual approach, the same methodology and the same rigor that exist in the world of wine.
Through its “Téireoir code” system, Waterford makes known all the indications which influenced the qualities of its bottlings, of the soil of the field, through its geolocation, the variety of barley, yeast, the barrels used and the assembly carried out: a terroir, a farm, a harvest ... As a bonus, interviews with farmers, superb photos and the sounds of the field can be found on the page dedicated to each Single Malt.
Waterford thus reveals the often underestimated influence of all the elements such as the earth, or the microclimate on the production of whisky.
"For years people have been deceived as to the source of the quality of whisky: first the stills, then the water and now the barrels. We want to highlight what makes whisky the most complex spirit in the world, the original source of its extraordinary aromas and flavours: barley." Says Mark Reynier, founder of the Waterford distillery. "The new Single Farm Origin range is a series of limited editions of natural whiskies with ultra-sharp origins that reveal the Irish terroir farm by farm, place by place. They are the expression of precision and rarity, revealing the aromas and flavours of barley from small Irish farms and varying with each harvest."
Backed by cutting-edge technology, Waterford Single Malts push the boundaries of authenticity and traceability.
