The Warenghem family first founded their namesake distillery in the Brittany region of France in 1900. In 1998, they created the Armorik, the first single malt whisky from Brittany. Armorik Double Maturation used a 100% malted barley mash that is distilled and aged in new Brittany oak casks before being finished in ex-oloroso sherry barrels.

Tasting Notes

"The nose is very fruity and floral, almost like what running through a field of flowers next to a peach orchard would smell like. On the palate, some more of that tart stone-fruit action, with mineral tones, malted milk chocolate, almonds and wheaty cereal. Very smooth, sweet and light, quite reminiscent of an Irish malt, but with its own je ne sais whisky. "
