Waterford Distillery Releases Irish Peated Whiskies

Waterford Distillery, terroir-driven Irish whisky producer, has bottled the first modern Irish Peated whiskies in generations – Peated: Fenniscourt and Peated: Ballybannon, from barley grown on two distinct Single Farm Origins. The whiskies are two new bottlings in Waterford Distillery’s Arcadian Farm Origins, which explore the old ways of farming and whisky in search of real rarity and intense flavors.

The new single malt whiskies use both Irish peat and Irish-grown barley – the first distillery in generations to do so – as part of Waterford’s quest to unearth whisky’s most natural flavors and commitment to Irish-only ingredients.

Both bottlings are the latest addition to Waterford’s Arcadian Farm Origins, which represent real rarity in whisky due to the scarcity of the raw materials. This range – which include Ireland’s only Organic whisky known as Organic Gaia and the world’s first Biodynamic whisky known as Biodynamic Luna that reimagines the old ways of production in the pursuit of flavor intensity over yield imperatives.

The arrival of the new Irish peat bottlings, spearheaded by CEO Mark Reynier, has been in development since 2017, though kept a secret until this year. The approach included selecting two Single Farm Origin barleys – from distinctive terroirs – to see if the flavor profiles could stand up to the smokiness of peat.

In true Waterford Whisky style, the approach needed a radical approach to ensure its Irish provenance. Irish peat has been redundant in whisky production since the turn of the 20th century, which meant all knowledge of how to use Irish peat had passed out of memory. Therefore the project involved ambitious collaborators, as well as trial and error in sourcing the appropriate peat sources with the moisture levels appropriate for whisky production.

Waterford Distillery sourced small amounts of peat cut from Country Kildare, and worked alongside their established malting partner, Minch Malt. Because there was no infrastructure in Ireland capable of peating barley, Waterford Distillery needed to ship small amounts of Irish peat and Irish barley to Scotland, iconic home to peated malt whisky, for the kilning process to take place – before being shipped back to Waterford for distillation.

Providing drinkers with full product transparency and traceability is Waterford Whisky’s trademark. Through TEIREOIR CODE technology, available on each and every bottle, drinkers can follow how the barley was harvested, stored, malted, and distilled – guaranteeing the integrity of each Single Farm Origin.

Neil Conway, Head Brewer of Waterford Distillery – explains: “Peat was a core part of Ireland’s heritage, whether that be commercially, for heating homes in rural countryside, or for the production of whisky. It was the ancient fuel source. At Waterford Distillery, since we place barley – the source of whisky’s natural flavor – at the center of our universe, we are gathering the widest array of pure and natural flavor components. It felt only natural to nod to our cultural heritage, preserve old ways, and explore the peating process with modern varieties.”

“Malt whisky is already one of the most complex spirits in the world, because it is made from barley – the best in the world coming from Ireland, adds Neil. So combining this with ancient peated methods that are no longer widely available in Ireland, added intriguing new layers of flavor complexity. Cultivating Irish peat and learning how the impact of moisture levels can determine the whiskies smokiness is just another step to unearth whisky’s most natural flavors. Of course it made little financial sense, but we did it for taste – and taste alone. Once we’d tried it, it was just too good to ignore and we thought that people really need to try this.”

Waterford’s Peated: Ballybannon and Peated: Fenniscourt are each 50% ABV, with 11,500 bottles of each being released globally. These whiskies are available in 700ml bottles for $99.99 in select retail stores starting in October within the U.S. Waterford Whisky is imported by Glass Revolution Imports.

“We are thrilled to be adding these two new Waterford expressions,” said Raj Sabharwal, Founding Partner at Glass Revolution Imports. “Given the rarity of these two Single Malt Whiskies, they will be allocated to the following markets – New York, Washington D.C., Maryland, Delaware, Illinois, Texas, California and Washington.”

Tasting Notes by Ned Gahan, Head Distiller at Waterford Distillery

While the Peated: Ballybannon has a stronger, smokier flavor and with an intense finish, the Peated Fenniscourt is a more subtle smokiness, with a softer finish.

PEATED: FENNISCOURT: Matured in a combination of 37% first-fill U.S. oak; 19% virgin U.S. oak; 20% Premium French oak; and 24% Vin Doux Naturel.

*Color: rich buttermilk with fabulous oils. *Nose: turf! Saltiness, pear skin, woodland moss, dried thyme, malted biscuits, marzipan, baked banana. *Taste: dry rope, barbecue, bog myrtle, white pepper, meaty; soft, earthy warmth, a dry finish in gentle waves. *Peating: 38 ppm

About Waterford Whisky: Waterford Whisky is on a quest to unearth whisky’s most natural flavors. Unashamedly influenced by the world’s greatest winemakers, Waterford brings the same intellectual drive, methodology and rigor to unearth the nuances that make Waterford Whisky the most profound single malt ever created. Across southern Ireland, warmed by the Gulf Stream, temperate, moist air crosses fertile soils to produce a verdant landscape and the world’s finest barley. Since barley is the source of malt whisky’s complex flavors, it makes abundant sense to focus on where and how the barley is cultivated. Those flavors are shaped by place, by the soils that nourish its roots, by the microclimate in which it ripens. By terroir. Waterford is a whisky of the world, born of Irish barley.

NEW ORLEANS – Do you feel that?

That’s the calm before the storm.

Here is the newest NCAA DIII Men’s Cross Country National Coaches’ Poll for the 2022 season, as released on Wednesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA). Remember that this poll is conducted by counting votes from ten member coaches – one from each of the division’s ten regions – who also do the weekly Regional Rankings.

NCAA Division III — Men's Cross Country

This Week's National Top Five
Cross Country Polls & Rankings

There was one change – or two, depending on how you look at it: St. Olaf leapfrogged George Fox between Week 4 and Week 5. The Oles went from No. 17 to No. 16, while the Bruins fell from No. 16 to No. 17. Notably, they both are the third-ranked team in their respective region.

St. Olaf is still riding a wave of momentum after winning back-to-back meets. The Oles most recently cruised to victory at the UW-Eau Claire Blugold Invitational with 44 points, thanks to putting three runners in the top-10 and all five scorers in the top-16. Just a few weeks earlier, St. Olaf took down a talented field at its own invitational with 42 points, as it sent all five scorers across the finish line in the top-15. Logan Bocovich and Will Kelly have led the Oles so far.

Otherwise, things remained the same from Week 4.

Don’t think for a second it’s going to stay that way after this weekend.

We’ll see some huge matchups between top-ranked teams across the nation between the Connecticut College Invitational in Waterford, Connecticut, the Oberlin Inter-Regional Rumble in Oberlin, Ohio, the Augustana Interregional Invitational in Rock Island, Illinois, as well as the Rowan Inter-Regional Border Battle in Logan Township, New Jersey. Don’t forget about the Jim Drews/Tori Neubauer Invitational hosted by UW-La Crosse in La Crosse, Wisconsin!

Pay close attention to both the Connecticut College Invitational as well as the Augustana Interregional Invitational. Two-time defending national champion Pomona-Pitzer squares off with No. 3 Wartburg and No. 4 North Central (Ill.) in the latter, while No. 2 MIT faces No. 9 Williams and No. 13 Haverford in the former. Both should be incredible meets.

Mark your calendars for Saturday, November 19, because that’s when the 2022 NCAA DIII Cross Country Championships will be held at the Forest Akers Golf Course in East Lansing, Michigan. Top athletes and teams from the 2022 season will take the course at noon ET.

Norfolk council defers decision on Waterford housing proposal

A much-discussed Waterford housing project will come back to Norfolk County Council in early October for further debate.

Article content

Councillors on Tuesday (Sept. 20) voted to put off a decision on the proposed development following a suggestion from Coun. Chris Van Paassen.

“This just gives a couple of weeks for staff and the applicant to sit down and see if there is some mutual ground,” Van Paassen said. “Let’s at least give staff and the applicant time to work on this.”

If the two sides are unable to find common ground, then council can make a decision on Oct. 5, Van Paassen said.

At issue is a proposed 47-unit mixed-housing development on a 1.3 hectare property at 750 Old Highway 24 in Waterford. G. Douglas Vallee Ltd. has applied for official plan and zoning bylaw amendments to facilitate the project located in what’s called the Yin subdivision.

Article content

The property is located across from an protected industrial area and beside land that is designated commercial.

Councillors were told the applicant has had ‘unprecedented” communication with residents in the subdivision and held a community meeting even though one wasn’t required. They were also told that the original proposal has been scaled down to 47 units from 55 in response to concerns.

As well, the proposal exceeds the county’s parking requirements and provides a mix of housing.

Brandon Sloan, the county’s general manager of community development, acknowledged the applicant’s efforts.

Sloan said the applicant has gone above and beyond what’s required. Moreover, the type of housing being proposed by the developer is needed in the community.

Article content

However, county planning staff have issues with the development, as proposed by the applicant, Sloan said.

The concerns are two fold – the land use compatibility or transition between industrial and residential areas as well as the potential loss of one of the last vacant commercial sites in Waterford.

County planning staff say a setback or separation of 70 metres is required to eliminate or reduce the possibility of conflicts should someone decide to use the protected industrial land for heavy industrial use.

Sloan said that in his experience the protection of industrial land is ‘paramount’ adding that there is very little industrial land available in Norfolk.

The county’s planning staff have suggested a housing development of 43 units on the site.

Article content

The applicant’s proposal, meanwhile has a set back or separation of about 20 metres with most of the homes being about 35 metres from the industrial property.

Mayor Kristal Chopp commended staff for their work.

“When we talk about good planning decisions, protecting some of that commercial use, building out Waterford and protecting industrial land, I think that’s what staff has tried to do,” Chopp said. “I realize that it’s easier for developers to just focus on residential housing than to deal with commercial space.

“But that doesn’t lead to complete communities down the road.”

Chopp said the 43-unit development proposed by staff is a “more than reasonable compromise,” given the circumstances.
