Guy le Lay founded the Distillerie des Menhirs in 1986 to produce a Brittany version of apple brandy. 12 years later, the le Lay family decided to begin producing a whisky based on Brittany-grown buckwheat, creating the EDDU ("buckwheat" in the Breton language spoken in Brittany) brand. Their EDDU Silver Brocéliande is the world's only whisky distilled from a 100% buckwheat mash. Aged in barrels made from oak from the Brocéliande forest in Central Brittany. Note: This is currenlty only available in Europe.

Tasting Notes

"An utterly refined, rich and complex whisky. The nose shows delightful floral aromas of hyacinth and wildflowers while the palate delivers deeper woody notes, vanilla and masses of dried fruits flowing on the tongue. A definite forestry profile for such a unique nectar. "
