The Story of Warenghem Distillery


From the Warenghem Distillery in Brittany, France, comes a complex single malt which is firstly aged in casks made from oak grown in Brittany. Following this, the whisky is moved over to Sherry oak casks for a finishing period..


The inspired idea that revolutionised the Warenghem Distillery is the creation of the first Breton and French whisky. Encouraged by Bernard Le Pallec, sales director, Gilles Leizour ensconced himself in the laboratory, creating a blend in 1987: the WB.


The first Breton single malt whisky followed in 1998, the Armorik. Brittany shares a Celtic culture, climate and land with its Irish and Scottish cousins. Supported by a coastal, rainy, stormy climate, the Breton character finds its full expression in the whiskies carefully developed by Gilles Leizour.


The sea, wind and rain have forged its character.  Two copper stills for a traditional double distillation, an ageing cellar enabling different types of casks to thoroughly mature the products and a cellar master passionate about obtaining the right aromatic balance are all elements that make the Armorik Whiskies.


Genuine symbol of the Distillery's values, this Armorik highlights both the quality of its know-how and its attachment to the Breton land. In partnership with a local cooper, the Distillery designed unique Brittany oak casks. Armorik Double Maturation remains in them for many long years before being transferred into Oloroso sherry casks for a second maturation. Reduced to 46% and non-chill filtered, it pleases through its richness and elegance


Tasting Note

A French single malt whisky with up-front notes of citrus and apple, soon joined by salted butter, rich oak and sea breeze.

Taste with water

NOSE: Fruity and elegant, it has wonderful citrus and apple notes, highlighted by salted butter, caramel fragrance.

PALATE: Fine woody notes rapidly changed on to cereal ones, all with an unsuspected fullness.

FINISH: Touches of heather honey perfume, the finish in the mouth is sustained by the cereals and pleasant marine notes.
