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…

Colour: golden yellow. Extremely pure, with great viscosity due to the double distillation with dregs and concentration during the ageing.

Nose: supple overall, rich and fully aromatic. Strong notes of oak: vanilla, balsamic and cigar box. Dried flowers scents: rose, carnation, lime and tea flower. Honeyed notes of nut pastry, with a touch of spices: cinnamon, curry, nutmeg. Typical character of buckwheat. A great aromatic maturity.

Palate: rich and well-structured. A perfect harmony of aromas flavours and sensations. A fully mature whisky.

Finish: long on the palate, more than five minutes.

A rare discovery for whisky enthusiasts:
- May be enjoyed neat in a tasting glass, like a great Cognac;
- On the rocks, reveals notes of candied apricot, citrus fruits and ripe plums.

A dashing spirit.
