Armorik French Whisky Masterclass: Aus Tour 2017!



The Oak Barrel is proud to confirm a single malt whisky masterclass with David Roussier of France’s Armorik Single Malt, complete with a very special Australian-only release.

We’ve had Armorik single malts on the shelves for a couple of years now and they are quintessentially French single malt – distilled and matured in France using local barley and sometimes local oak as well. It is the single malt brand of the historic Distillerie Warenghem in Bretagne, whove been distilling since 1990 but have really upped their whisky game in the past two decades.

Sometimes delicate and sometimes rich, their unpeated single malts take on the richness of their casks well, while keeping a minerality which seems to be constant across the range.

Thanks to Le Baron des Spirits we’re going to have a fantastic evening led by Roussier, GM of Armorik, who’s flying into Australia for the event.

Going through their core lines and latest limited releases, the tasting will also showcase a very special Australian exclusive ex-Sauternes cask 10-year-old, bottled especially for this Australian visit.

Tickets for this very special night are now on sale.

We’ll be trying:

Armorik Classic Single Malt (46%)
Armorik Double Maturation Single Malt (46%)
Armorik Dervenn Single Malt (46%)
Armorik Maitre de Chai 2016 Single Malt (46%)
