Eddu 21 Years Old Graal 70cl 43°
When making Eddu Gold in 2001, Guy Le Lay, founder of the Breton whisky, had the brilliant idea of setting aside a barrel that stood out from the others.
The years pass, the whisky ages under the watchful eye of Guy's three sons, and after 21 years of patience, the Eddu Grail is born. Bottled at 43°, available in a very limited edition of 304 bottles, this Single Cask is imbued with maturity but also with a surprisingly preserved freshness.
This is the oldest whisky ever bottled in France.

In 1998, new premises are built and a new still purchased: the idea becomes real. The expert advice of a Spirit Master will lead him to success and guarantee the exceptional quality of the whisky to come…
