Distillerie Des Menhirs
A small family company located in the far reaches of Brittany, the Distillerie des Menhirs has produced a selection of traditional Breton eaux-de-vie since 1986. Having started with the production of pommeau, cider and lambig (cider eau-de-vie), they came up with the idea of making a 100% Breton whisky. To give a solid basis to this audacious undertaking, and remain faithful to the region’s traditions, Guy Le Lay decided to distil the local black wheat (“eddu” in Breton). In addition to the two 100% pure black wheat whiskies (Silver and Gold), they now also produce a “blended” release, from a mixture of black wheat and barley, and some limited editions, aged exclusively in Breton oak barrels.
