Armorik Whisky is made from 100% French malted barley from Champagne. The grains come from granitic soils located close to the sea, very iodized (the sea is less than 6 miles away) and the weather is as rainy and windy as the Scottish Highlands. Overall, the region is a bit warmer than the Scottsih Highlands but the humidity level is the same, both of which favor the aging of the whisky. The distillery sits on a water source by the name of Rest Avel (House of Wind), which gives a pure and crystal clear granitic water.
Cornerstone of the Distillerie Warenghem range, Armorik Classic comprises some of the best whisky found in the distillery cellar, in a highly refined edition. As a marriage of sherry and bourbon casks of different ages, it highlights the quality of the ageing on the Breton Coasts and the expertise of their cellar manager.
Armorik Classic is non-chill filtered, thus refining its aromatic qualities
