Warenghem Distillery has been situated on the coast of Brittany, a coastal land with ties to Celtic history, since around 1900. In the 1990s, they started producing Armorik single malt. This expression spends most of its maturation in ex-bourbon barrels and is finished for a few months in ex-sherry casks.

Tasting Notes

"This malt has a rich, chocolatey quality that almost tastes like very boozy, room temperature cocoa. Roasted almonds, cashews and walnuts come in with a couple of sips, enhanced by orange zest, tart plums, yeasty shortbread, caramel and a faint hint of lavender. Finishes with long flavors and a bit of heat. "
