This summer, Waterford Distillery is releasing a first-of-its-kind Irish spirit with the world's first biodynamic whiskey. Biodynamic: Luna 1.1 is made only with biodynamic barley made by farmers in Ireland who take a holistic, ecological, and ethical approach to farming. Waterford has distilled about 500 barrels of liquid from the biodynamic barley with the intention of creating "a more flavorsome" spirit. While many wineries rely on biodynamic practices, this is the first time whiskey is being shared in the same way.
Increased interest in climate-conscious food and beverages is driving the growth of regeneratively grown products, which appeals to consumers for its "beyond organic" approach to working with the land and the nutrient-dense foods created in the process.
