Our single malts

Armorik Double maturation

46% – 70cl
Maturation:
Matured in Breton oak casks, followed by oloroso sherry casks.

As a symbol of the distillery’s values, this Armorik highlights both the quality of its know-how and its attachment to the Breton terroir. From a partnership with a local cooper, the distillery has drawn unique casks made of Breton oak. Armorik Double Maturation is matured in these barrels for many years before being transferred to sherry casks for a second maturation.

Made from organically grown french barley and distilled in our traditional pot stills, it shows our desire to create an exceptional single malt that reflects the breton character: a rich and fruity whisky, respectful of the environment.

It was awarded “Best European Single Malt Whisky” at the 2013 World Whiskies Awards and “Double Gold” at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

NOSE

Nice balance between the fruity notes of mirabelle and citrus, and a spicy and vanilla side.

MOUTH

Soft and round attack on honey, the complexity of the product is then revealed with spicy notes, woodiness and ripe fruits in a beautiful volume.

FINISH

Very long, with notes of spices, cookies and orange jam.

Armorik Classic

46% – 70cl
Maturation:
Matured in Bourbon casks

Armorik Classic is the result of maturation in bourbon casks of different ages. Smooth, unctuous and rich, it highlights the expertise of our master blender and the quality of maturation on the Breton coast.

Made from organic French barley and distilled in our traditional pot stills, it shows our desire to create an exceptional single malt that reflects the Breton character : a rich and fruity whisky, respectful of the environment.

Gold medalist at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition and silver medalist at the International Spirits Challenge 2021 and International Wine & Spirit Competition 2021.

Attack on fresh fruits (peach and apricot) then beautiful sweetness with vanilla notes. Light toasted notes accompanied the fatness and power of the whisky.

FINISH

Nice length, lively and warm, with a hint of iodine.

Armorik Sherry Cask

46% – 70cl
Maturation: Matured in oloroso sherry casks

Armorik Sherry is fully matured in Oloroso Sherry casks. These casks, traditionally used in Scotch whisky, were used to make sherry wine, a cousin of Pineau des Charentes. This Armorik is therefore characterized by spicy notes and candied fruits that enhance the characteristic fruitiness of Armorik. It brings together Breton and Andalusian influences for a generous taste.

Made from organically grown French barley and distilled in our traditional pot stills, it shows our desire to create an exceptional single malt that reflects the Breton character: a rich and fruity whisky, respectful of the environment.
