Ed Gwenn 70cl 45°

Distillery : Distillerie des Menhirs / Country : France / Reference: : 22968

Ed Gwenn is the new release of the Distillerie des Menhirs. Made from 100% Breton barley and a very typical Breton name meaning "white cereal", this new expression matches the famous Eddu whisky, distilled from buckwheat.

Distilled in a column still at high temperatures, and aged for four years in old oak casks, unchill-filtered and bottled at 45°, this Single Grain develops luxury notes of exotic fruits.

From banane flambee flavours to candied fruits, mango, pear or pinneaple, this whisky offers a wide array of rich fruit notes. A beautiful discovery with sweet, exotic flavours.

100% Breton barley.

Located in Brittany (near Quimper), the Distillerie des Menhirs of Plomelin stands out for its originality. Indeed, it transforms black wheat and apples to cider, both emblematic productions of Brittany, into a range of whiskeys, spirits and high-quality cider.

Guillaume, the son of Francès, became a known figure as local distiller in the public workshop of Pont-Menhir, Plomelin. So as for his son René. Francès, Guillaume, René.. Guy almost broke the family legacy training as a maths teacher. But the distillation gene took over and Guy came back on the track laid down by his ancestors. In 1986, Guy and his wife planted orchards and built in Pont Menhir their own distillery, hoping to manufacture a new spirit, unheard of in Brittany: The Pommeau des Menhirs, which would become the first Pommeau in Brittany to bear an Appelation of Controlled Origin.

Having mastered the art of distilling cider, Guy Le Lay, always seeking new products boasting the authentic Breton identity, develops the idea of distilling a new cereal: Breton buckwheat. 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…
