Traceability in Ireland

In Ireland we have started a project with an established whiskey distiller to develop a fully traceable supply chain. The barley grower and the fields are carefully selected to grow local barley for the distiller at the beginning of the season. At harvest time the barley is collected from the specific growers and delivered to a local mill where the barley is dried into individual bays, after which each bay is screened and delivered to our malting site. The barley is malted separately and stored in a designated silo area before delivery to the distillery. All the agronomic information from the field is recorded throughout a pioneering digital logistical system, Farmflo, which keeps track of where a farmer’s crop is harvested, stored, malted, and distilled, allowing for full traceability of the crop. This leads to the production of whiskies that explore Irish terroir one farm at a time.
