A real spice bomb that reflects its Irish terroir.

Mark Reynier is one of the few living legends of both Whisky and Whiskey. He’s worked in Wine & Spirits since 1980. In 1996 he was a co-founder of independent bottler Murray David. In 2000 they purchased the dormant Bruichladdich Distillery and as CEO Mark returned it to unquestioned greatness. In 2012 the founders and investors voted to sell both operations to Rémy Cointreau Group — Mark was the lone dissenting vote. And while he might have taken his share of the millions and retired in comfort, he immediately turned around and purchased a facility from Diageo in Waterford, Ireland, and began distilling in 2015. This is his new passion — The Waterford Distillery. Here he and his team produce a range of fine Irish Whiskies.

On Ireland’s southern coast stands Hook Head Farm where Martin Foley grows his Irish barley only 10 kilometers away from the distillery. Waterford Single Farm Origin Hook Head Edition 1.1 is an Irish Single Malt that’s made from that exact barley from one single farm. You could say this offering explores the impact the terroir can have on the Whiskey’s flavor profile. The impact on this particular one? It’s a real spice bomb that’s packed with flavors of cloves, white pepper, salted caramel, liquorice, ginger biscuits, lemon zest, and chili chocolate.

Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Many of the Guinness brewery’s former employees that were laid off after it shut down, were able to come back to work at the new distillery. 46 local farmers have also been contracted to grow barley for use in their single malt Whiskey.
Irish Whiskey became the most renowned Whiskey and most popular Spirit in the 19th century after the outbreak of phylloxera and the total devastation of Cognac production in France.
There are many Irish Whiskey varieties: grain Whiskey, malted barley pot-still-distilled, and ‘pure pot-still’ or ‘single pot still’ as it is now officially known. Then there is Poitin, one of the first Spirits ever made.
In the U.S., Irish Whiskey sales have jumped by over 500% since 2002. It’s the fastest growing category in the Spirits industry. There’s some news to raise your glass to.
The Harp is the official emblem of Ireland, not the shamrock. The reason for shamrock’s fame is Saint Patrick.
