Armorik Dervenn 10 Years Old Edition 2022 70cl 46°
"Dervenn" means oak in the Breton language. The Warenghem distillery has been working for 20 years in collaboration with Jean-Baptiste Le Floc’h, the last Breton cooper, as well as the ONF, to create oak barrels from Breton forests. From the choice of felled trees, to the manufacture of barrels and their roasting, the work is carried out hand in hand with the cellar master and the distiller. These unique barrels are used for the ageing of some of the Armorik whiskies, side by side with American barrels.
After a few years of absence, Armorik Dervenn returns in a 10-year version, in a limited edition.
For this Armorik Dervenn, unique barrels have been selected to express the soul of the Breton terroir. It develops subtle woody and spicy aromas, and reveals all the more the fruitiness and roundness of Armorik whisky.
Non-chill filtered, natural colour.
The distillery Warenghem has carried on its craftsmanship for over 100 years in Lannion in Brittany with the development of alcohols and spirits including Breton whisky Armorik.
A pioneer of malt distilleries in France with a production of French whisky since 1983, the distillery has innovated and launched its Single Malt Armorik in 1987. The Breton company makes a range of Breton whiskies in the Celtic tradition of Irish and Scottish cousins. In the region of Côtes d'Armor, Brittany, France, the distillery has found a perfect environment between the moors and the sea, for the aging of its whisky. Armorik highlights both the quality of the distillery's know-how and its attachment to the Breton terroir.
The production of whisky goes through two copper stills for a double distillation, a cellar aging allowing a thorough work on different types of casks and a passionate cellar master.
Armorik whisky often has notes of iodine, salted butter caramel and cooked apples, reminiscent of the culinary culture of the region and the many traditions of alcohol production.
Pioneering status has earned Armorik the largest stock of French whisky with a very good range of award-winning whiskies, including the Gold Medal at the Concours Général Agricole 2014 for Armorik Classic.
