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.
