Proud heir of France’s first Whisky.
 
On the brink of the 19th century, an industrious family with a decidedly non-French name — the Warenghems — set up a distillery by the river Léguer in Lannion. Their first release, Élixir d’Armorique, was an absolute hit, even outside Brittany. Eight decades later, another trailblazing blockbuster appeared: the first Breton and French Whisky. In 1998, the first French Single Malt followed, and it was named Armorik, honoring the legendary elixir. There’s a lot Armorik has in common with Scotch: the area shares the Celtic culture, and the climate is quite similar to misty hills of Scotland.
 
Armorik Double Maturation is a proud heir to the pioneer. The non-chill-filtered no-fake-color Single Malt first spends some time in new local Breton charred oak casks — a slight twist to the usual ex-Bourbon barrels for Scotch. Then, it’s moved to casks that used to hold Sherry. The first maturation brings a unique flavor character, while the second nicely rounds off the affair. The balance of dark notes and sweetness creates depth and a fantastic texture. Armorik may be obscure, but it’s a true gem and an instant classic.

Is it spelled Whisky or Whiskey? Maybe you've noticed it before, but let’s just take a wee moment to help you keep your Es in order with this simple rule: There is an E in the word Ireland, so there is also an E in their Whiskey. The rule also holds true for United States, so while there is no E in Scotland, Japan and Canada the same goes for their Whisky. All clear? Good.
In the U.S., Irish Whiskey sales have jumped by over 500% since 2002. It’s the fastest growing category in the Spirits industry. There’s some news to raise your glass to.
The two biggest Whisky producers in Japan and major rivals are Nikka and Suntory.
