CREATION OF BRETON WHISKY
But the inspired idea that revolutionised the Warenghem Distillery is the creation of the first Breton and French whisky. Encouraged by Bernard Le Pallec, sales director, Gilles Leizour ensconced himself in the laboratory, creating a blend in 1987: the WB.
The first Breton single malt whisky followed in 1998, the Armorik. Brittany shares a Celtic culture, climate and land with its Irish and Scottish cousins. Supported by a coastal, rainy, stormy climate, the Breton character finds its full expression in the whiskies carefully developed by Gilles Leizour.
The daring gamble of breton whisky has paid off, Warenghem Distillery is a market leader in French whisky.
Michel Couvreur Overaged Malt WhiskyMichel Couvreur Overaged Malt Whisky
Michel Couvreur Overaged Malt Whisky is a vatting of single malts aged between 12 and 27 years in oak casks and resulting from a cognac (double) distillation method with a mash exclusively made of malted barley.
It has been reduced to 43% alcohol by volume. Beige amber tint.
Fragrance of dried flowers, flaxen tobacco, sherry wine, fat almond, a little smoked.
Fruity, powerful and long in the mouth.
Aimed at a balance between new pure young malts and fathomless maturity of older ones.
End of mouth: sherry roundness enhanced by a slightly smoked.

Michel Couvreur XV 2005-2020 Single Malt.
Distilled in Scotland in 2005, wholly matured in a Palo Cortato cask in our Burgundian Caves and bottled at strength in 2020.
Floral, fine and delicate, it presents unusual scents of flint, dried flowers flavours. Always the same silky texture and spice provided by the sherry barrels which are intense in the mouth. Pretty orange bitterness, reminding old liquors, enhanced by a slightly toasted finish.
