Eccentric to some, regenerative to others, biodynamic agriculture goes beyond the ordinary ecological mindset. Drawing upon ancient lore of lunar cycles & exotic preparations, it seeks to charge soils with vitality & barley with vibrancy. Practiced by the most visionary & curious, the distillers at Waterford are also intrigued about the most natural flavors they can capture in spirit. For this landmark whisky, distilled from Ireland’s only biodynamic barley, they invoke the goddess of the moon for their most esoteric & evocative bottling.
