Eddu Silver Broceliande 70cl 42°
With the Silver range, the Menhirs distillery is the only one to produce a whisky from buckwheat. This version is even more special with its innovative finish in casks made from mythical Broceliande oak. This is the forest of Arthurian tales and legends, featuring enchanter Merlin, Morgane and Viviane fairies, and the Knights of the Round Table.
With a first maturation in French oak casks that previously contained Cognac, this whisky has been refined in Broceliande oak casks. With this version, the distillery's roots run deep in Breton culture, for a truly unique, unparalled Eddu Silver whisky.
Eddu Silver Broceliande is silky and quite oaky. It reveals floral notes of spices, and lovely flavours of sweet dried fruits.

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…
