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 flavor over yield imperative. For the first time, they dip 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.
