A New Window into Ireland’s Best Selection Of Artisan Food

A New Window into Ireland’s Best Selection Of Artisan Food

Ardkeen QFS at Shaws WD

A year after opening our initial collaboration with Shaws Department Store in Waterford, which showcased a curated selection of Irish artisan award-winning artisan food and drink, we have now reimagined and considerably expanded our footprint within the quayside location, incorporating a brand-new barista bar, dedicated to offering a meticulously crafted cup of coffee.

Matching our well established ‘Dunmore Road’ store menu with a rotating selection of exclusive, single-origin guest coffees, the coming weeks will also see the addition of fresh, made to order breakfasts, sandwiches, wraps, and bowls made with the finest seasonal produce devised by Chef Michael Quinn, and geared toward customers who want to grab healthy, tasty meals on the go.

The spacious 1500 sq. foot, window front location of Ardkeen Artisan Food and Coffee hosts an even broader range of small-batch Irish producers, made instore cakes and Artisan breads together with quality gourmet ingredients from further afield.

City centre customers will now have access to sourdough bread, Gubbeen charcuterie, Sheridan’s Cheese, Shines Wild Irish Tuna, juices and Jams from The Apple Farm, Whitfield honey, Jaybee’s Bakery as well as Rustichella d’Abruzzo pasta, Prunotto sauces, oils from Honest Toil and so much more.

We developed this unique format using the creative input some of Waterford’s best local crafts people and suppliers including the design agency TrueOutput; the look and feel of the location underscore the quality thread which runs through both Ardkeen and Shaw brands. Careful selection, presentation, and merchandising by the talented team at Ardkeen have resulted in a very special retail environment.

Now Waterford city centre customers can experience and enjoy the high-quality product curation and coffee expertise Ardkeen is renowned for.

Many of us have occasions when we decide to cut down, or take a break from alcohol. This can be for health reasons, having early deadlines to meet, or that we are the designated driver. Much of our socialising has traditionally been constructed around social drinking, and while water and soft drinks are an alternative, some of us just like the taste of alcohol when out.
The practical definition of alcohol-free used by most countries is under 0.5% alcohol by volume (ABV). The good news is how much easier it is to go alcohol-free, compared even a few years ago. The move to alcohol-free, or low in alcohol drinks for some of our choices, is being firmly embraced and in fact, it is largely consumer driven. As a result, the quality and selection available now has made the choice easier and more appealing.
