In addition to cognac and armagnac, the French also like whisky and have mastered its production. Also in France there are already some successful whisky manufacturers. The decades of distilling tradition and the widespread cultivation of cereals led to France establishing itself as a renowned whisky nation.
The result is a wide range of different whiskies - with the main part being single malt whiskies. French whisky - which used to stand out as surprisingly fruity - now offers a variety of different taste nuances. It is mostly single malts that benefit from the high quality of the French grain used. Single malt whiskies or buckwheat whiskies with or without peat are well-known specialities from Brittany.
The "Armorik" from the Warengheim distillery is the most widespread.
