Breizh Blended Whisky
Armorik // Brittany, France
The Warenghem family first founded their namesake distillery in the Brittany region of France in 1900. Inspired by the Celtic culture shared with Ireland and Scotland, and the desire to create the first Breton and French whisky, they released their first blend in 1987 and first single malt in 1998. First released in 2009, this expression is made from a mash of 50% malt and 50% grain that is double-distilled in copper stills before aging in "traditional" oak casks. It is bottled at 42% ABV.
BlendedComprised of both single malt(s) and single grain(s) often from many different distilleries; if Scotch or Irish must be aged for at least three years in oak barrels; Irish may include single pot still whiskey in the blend.
