The lighthouse at Hook Head stands resolute against the full force of the Atlantic Ocean on Ireland’s southern coast, 10 miles from the distillery – so close that Oliver Cromwell vowed to take Waterford 'by hook or by crook' in the 17th century.

Exposed to the full range of salt-laden storms, sea mists & ocean breezes, it’s an extreme maritime terroir.
