Kornog French Whisky

Kornog French Whisky

On the windswept Northern coast of French Brittany, the old farm that houses the Glann ar Mor distillery has sustained life and faced the sea elements since around 1668. Closer to Plymouth than to Paris, this small distillery makes peated and unpeated whisky. Follow the road from Paris, through Le Mans, Rennes and Saint-Brieuc until it ends by the coast. Here you will find the small little distillery established by the Celtic Whisky Compangnie in 1999. Their first unpeated single malt was released in 2008 under the Glann ar Mor label. Glann ar Mor translates from “ By the Sea” in Breton language. Kornog is the peated expression of the distillery. It is peated at about 35 – 40 ppm of phenol. Kornog translate to “West Wind” in Breton. Compared to the Scottish distilleries, Glann ar Mor is a small distillery with only 2 stills. Maturation takes place in ex Sauternes casks and ex Bourbon barrels.
